This work is the first multivolume resource to define the issues that surround cancer and its effects on society. With more than 750 entries, these three volumes help students, practitioners, and researchers navigate through the terminology and concepts to better understand how cancer affects us way beyond the medical conditions that are regrettably more than obvious. The scope of the Encyclopedia encompasses the relative individual and societal aspects of cancer, from the latest research from the National Cancer Institute to studies on alternative diet and nutrition treatments.
"The resulting guide will serve general readers and students in both public and academic libraries."
