Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S., striking as many as one and three Americans. But a new book — the “Cancer Survival Guide,” by award-winning Newsmax health reporter Charlotte Libov — delves into the latest medical research to identify ways to survive a cancer diagnosis.

Hearing your doctor utter those dreaded words “You have cancer” can spark desperate feelings of fear, panic, and helplessness, which can lead to rash decisions about treatment. But the good news is that major strides in treating cancer have made it a manageable condition for many Americans.
In fact, federal health statistics show more Americans are living with cancer than dying of cancer each year. And the number of cancer survivors is growing.

Just as the title implies, the “Cancer Survival Guide” — part of the bestselling DaVinci Guide series from Humanix Books — will lead you through what will undoubtedly be the most crucial healthcare decisions you’ll ever make, if you are diagnosed with cancer.

Libov’s definitive guide provides a manual to understanding and managing the disease — and even smart strategies to prevent it — relying on the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available on the subject. Among the book’s many invaluable sections:

• What cancer is, its symptoms and causes, and how it affects the body.
• The major forms of cancer including statistics on gender, age, culture, and prognosis.
• How to choose the right doctor based on your diagnosis.
• Creating a personal healthcare record to ensure that no detail is left to chance.
• The conventional and alternative treatments available, and what side effects to expect.
• Physical and emotional coping strategies, before, during, and after treatment.
• How to navigate life after cancer and the future of cancer research.

The “Cancer Survival Guide” addresses virtually every facet of this illness that affects a patient’s physical well-being and lifestyle, as well as impacts on family, friends, and caregivers.

“I found out so many new things when I was researching [the book]" Libov said, in a recent interview with RadioMD. "One of the things is that even though breast cancer is a very scary topic, the good news is that today there’s nearly 3 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States, mostly due to early detection and that about 90 percent overall of women with breast cancer will survive at least five years or more…. However, we also have to remember that there are 40,000 women a year who die from the disease.”

The book will be in stores February 2, 2016, will also be available online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
