Bone Cancer (Cancer and Modern Science)by Heather Hasan
Synopses & Reviews
Thoroughly researched and reviewed by an expert oncologist, this book looks closely at bone cancer, a disease that affects mostly children and adolescents. The author clearly explains the various types of bone cancer before discussing individual bone cancer risk factors, including genetic factors. She then goes into a detailed discussion of diagnosis and treatment of the disease. The final chapter examines improved surgical techniques that have led to fewer amputations as well as the technological advances in prosthetics that have greatly improved the lives of bone cancer survivors.
