Nancy Leupold, herself a survivor, and president and founder of Support for People with Oral and Head and Neck Cancer (SPOHNC), and James J. Sciubba present an overview of the different disciplines involved in the treatment of oral and head and neck cancer, with emphasis on providing information and survivor tips to help survivors cope with the disease, its treatment, and their consequential side effects. This book takes a deliberately different stance and approach from other survivor guides, in that it concentrates on helping the individual who has completed treatment and is now on the road to recovery. Furthermore, it is unique in that it is attempting to meet the challenges of oral and head and neck cancer with specific information, in the form of lists and tables of products and suggestions. The editors enlist the help of expert physicians and other healthcare providers from major medical institutions in the United States who, collectively, aim to provide the answers to questions from coping with side-effects, through clinical trials, to insurance issues. The book is written to appeal both to individuals who are affected by oral and head and neck cancers as well as to the allied health professionals who need to have the answers to the many questions that arise.
