All about lung cancer for the layperson. This book is a must-read for current and former smokers. This book is a valuable resource explaining both the challenges and choices faced by a lung cancer sufferer and his/her family.

All about lung cancer for the layperson. About 25% of adult Americans still smoke even after years of learning that it is a very deadly habit. This is because the nicotine in tabacco is highly addictive. Sadly over 80% of lung cancer is caused by smoking. The human body is just not designed to handle all of the dread toxins that smoking puts into the lungs and the rest of the body. This is one of the most deadly forms of human cancer.

Original
There is excellent information about Lung Cancer. It is easily understood by the lay person.

GOOD TECHNICAL INFOMATION, BUT THE "HOPE" THEY GIVE AT THE END IS HOW TO PLAN FOR AN IMMINENT DEATH! VERY DISAPPOINTING IN THAT REGARD. I THINK THERE ARE MANY BOOKS AVAILABLE THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE ANATOMICAL WORKINGS OF THE LUNGS AND CANCER WITHOUT THE DESCRIPTION OF WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE END. HOW CAN YOU HAVE "HOPE" WHEN THESE AUTHORS AREN'T OFFERING ANY. GRANTED THIS WAS WRITTEN PRIOR TO IMMUNOTHERAPY

This book champions the use of lung scans, for those at high risk of developing lung cancer, BEFORE symptoms appear - scans that radically and dramatically increase the odds of surviving this dreaded disease. While fully aware of the chance for false positives and their consequences, Henschke provides compelling reasons for utilizing this technology anyway. The book also consists of a thorough review of such topics as lung health, lung cancer and its development, treatment and diagnostic options in addition to lung scans, recovery tips, and alternative methodologies. This is a terrific reference source for people such as former smokers who are doing what they can to avoid developing lung cancer and who also want to maximize their odds for BEATING lung cancer should they develop it anyway.

I have lung cancer. I found this book in my local oncology dept. I liked it so much I bought a used copy through amazon.

I recommend reading a book like this to give background knowledge about the many aspects, emotional and physical of lung cancer. Its treatment and diagnosis etc. The book is well written and thorough.

con: at 10 years old it is getting out of date. inspire.com and drugs.com for up to date info.

pro: $4 with shipping.

When my mom was diagnosed with Lung Cancer, I didn't know enough about it. I purchased several books on lung cancer but found this one easy to read, direct and to the point. This book helped me understand when the Oncologist talked about the stage of mom's cancer and the options available. Not only did this book give me a clearer overall picture of lung cancer, it is an awesome resourcetool and assisted me in the proper questions to ask the doctor. I recommend this book to anyone who has just been diagnosed or has family or a friend who has.
