Cancers of the Mouth and Throat
A Patient's Guide to TreatmentBook - 2001
William Lydiatt, M.D. and Perry Johnson, M.D., have worked with hundreds of mouth and throat cancer patients.

Topics covered in this book include how early detection leaads to high cure rates; symptoms that could mean cancer; the emotional side of the cancer; how doctors make a diagnosis; staging the cancer and why it so important; surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy--how they kill cancer; reconstructive surgery; and experimental treatment through clinical trials.
