Abstract
This book discusses the impact on women of the diagnosis and treatment of early breast cancer. Readers will learn about the risks of breast cancer recurrence and interventions to reduce these, such as endocrine therapy and bisphosphonate therapy, as well as the role of lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise. The long-term effects of treatment on fertility, the heart and other systems are discussed, as well the psychological burden for women who are increasingly likely to be cured from their cancer. Each chapter provides background and a practical guide in the management of women after the initial phase of diagnosis and treatment. Authored by a multidisciplinary team this book provides all the relevant expertise as well as different perspectives, providing a holistic picture of early breast cancer consequences. From oncologists to general practitioners as well as specialist nurses, gynaecologists, psychologists and other healthcare professionals involved in the long-term care of women with breast cancer, this book provides a timely and indispensable guide to practitioners caring for early breast cancer survivors.

Abstract
This book provides a wide-ranging overview of the sexual consequences of cancer and its treatment with the aim of equipping physicians and other health care providers with the awareness and knowledge required in order to offer patients effective treatment. While sexuality may not be the primary focus for cancer patients, at some point, whether because of sexual changes of relationship issues, many patients come to acknowledge the effects that cancer and its treatment have had on their sexuality. Although the impacts are frequently similar, significant variation is observed. Some patients experience changes in all phases of sexual response, while others experience none; moreover, the consequences of the effects may be felt differently by patients and partners. Unfortunately, many physicians and health care providers remain insufficiently aware of the impact of cancer on sexuality and/or lack knowledge about the concerns of patients and the available treatments and coping strategies. A further issue is the reticence of physicians to discuss sexuality and the fear of sexologists to talk to patients about cancer. Readers will find this book to be a rich source of help in overcoming these constraints and delivering suitable care to patients.

Abstract
This updated edition provides clinicians from various backgrounds and levels of training the information needed to optimally diagnose and manage neurologic complications of the nervous system. Organized into seven sections, this comprehensive volume begins with an overview of diagnostic studies for neurologic complications involving the nervous system. That is followed by sections on metastatic and non-metastatic complications of cancer involving the nervous system, and the interpretation, diagnosis, and management of common neuro-oncologic symptoms. The next section reviews the neurologic complications of cancer therapy, including corticosteroids, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted molecular therapies, immunotherapies, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and infections involving the nervous system. The final section focuses on the most important neurologic complications in cancers arising from specific organs. In addition to capturing the latest advancements in the rapidly evolving fields of oncology and cancer neurology, the goal of this resource is to lead clinicians toward prompt diagnosis and intervention in order to improve patient quality of life. "This textbook is a valuable resource for medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, as well as neurologists and neuro-oncologists dealing with these patients. Overall, the chapters are well organized, clearly written, fairly balanced, and reasonably up to date. I would recommend it as a learning tool to physicians in training (medical students, residents, and fellows) and for more experienced physicians as both a review/ update and a way to gain more in-depth knowledge and insight into the neurologic problems of cancer patients." (John C. Flickinger, International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, Vol. 73 (2), 2009) "The general organization of the book is logical and facilitates its practical and everyday use. Overall this textbook is very comprehensive and encompasses main neuro-oncological challenges. Schiff, Kesari and Wen have edited a very elegant and highly practical textbook, written by recognized authorities in their respective fields, which will be used by a wide range of medical and surgical specialists who are confronted on a daily basis with neurological manifestations of cancer in their practice." (I. Radovanovic and G. Zadeh, British Journal of Cancer, Vol. 100 (6), 2009).

Cancer patients and survivors can be frustrated by the mental cloudiness they notice before, during, and after cancer treatment. This common cancer side effect is called Brain Fog or Chemo Brain. The term Chemo Brain can be misleading as chemotherapy is not the only cause of concentration and memory problems. This pamphlet explains what brain fog is, what causes it, the risk factors for brain fog, and what you can do to manage it. A list of resources for further information is included.

Cancer patients and survivors can be frustrated by the mental cloudiness they notice before, during, and after cancer treatment. This common cancer side effect is called Brain Fog or Chemo Brain. The term Chemo Brain can be misleading as chemotherapy is not the only cause of concentration and memory problems. This pamphlet explains what brain fog is, what causes it, the risk factors for brain fog, and what you can do to manage it. A list of resources for further information is included.
