FAIRFIELD, Calif. (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
Dr. Kevin P Ryan treated many patients during his 30 years of work, but he noticed that no other diagnosis caused as much fear and uncertainty as cancer. “When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer: A Comprehensive Text for Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients and their Families” (published by AuthorHouse) is Ryan’s new book to guide new patients and their families through the disease and all that follows.
“This book has profoundly cogent, relevant, comprehensive, compassionate and correct information about the entire experience from rumor of tumor to cancer being the answer,” Ryan says.
One of the first topics Ryan covers in this extensive book is the subject of autonomy. This principle of a patient controlling his or her care is vital, especially for those diagnosed with cancer, according to Ryan. Ryan states that physicians and family members also must be aware of the patient’s right to handle his or her treatment as he or she wishes.
“When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer” covers the treatment options available to patients. The book describes the symptoms and side effects, both physical and emotional, of the disease as well as the treatments.
As Ryan writes, “A major aim of this book is the goal of reducing anxiety and helping those confronted with this disease to marshal their internal resources to conquer their natural fears and ultimately learn to become cancer survivors.”
