Understanding Cancer

Scientific American Explores Big Ideas

Less than a century ago, the prognosis for those diagnosed with cancer tended to be bleak. However, in recent decades massive strides have been made in the understanding and treatment of cancer. This volume examines the advancements that have occurred in cancer research, including recent studies on the environmental and genetic causes of cancer, new therapies to help treat different types of cancer, and updated opinions on the role screenings and other preventative care can play in preventing cancer. It also explains exciting new research that could lead to quicker, less invasive, and more effective cancer treatments, or perhaps even stop certain types of cancer from developing at all.
