"The knowledge gap between oncologists and patients causes undue anxiety,” Ryan says. “The entire experience can be better for patients and their families when they remain active in treatment."

Kevin P. Ryan, MD FACP COL USAF (ret) empowers patients and their families with knowledge about living with cancer in his book, “When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer: A Comprehensive Text for Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients and their Families” (published by AuthorHouse).
In the book, Ryan uses authoritative and informative language to guide patients from diagnosis through treatment and even death. The goal, he says, is to make patients active participants in their treatment, at home and in the examination room.
“Cancer patients and their families can lower anxiety by being informed and comfortable voicing concerns,” Ryan says. “Autonomy in the examination room leads to better collaboration with the entire team of cancer practitioners, and ultimately better treatment.”
The book analyzes a wide scope of topics, from sexual health to spiritual support, making it a truly comprehensive guide for patients, families and physicians. Ryan also tells the stories of 10 former patients, whose heroic tales will inspire and motivate patients currently fighting cancer.
“The knowledge gap between oncologists and patients causes undue anxiety,” Ryan says. “The entire experience can be better for patients and their families when they remain active in treatment.”
