Dr. Kevin Ryan, MD, FACP COL USAF (ret) is a cancer doctor, cancer survivor and author of “When Tumor is The Rumor and Cancer is the Answer: A comprehensive text for newly diagnosed cancer patients and their families.” Dr. Ryan addresses these anxieties in a systematic, logical, supportive and compassionate way to cancer patients and their families. He guides the cancer patient and their family through the entire process starting with the diagnosis and the importance of the patient’s autonomous right to control his or her treatment as he or she wishes. “When Tumor is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer” also covers various treatment options available. Possible symptoms and side effects, both physical and emotional are also addressed. Dr. Ryan also discusses alternative and unproven therapies, cutting-edge therapies, medical ethics and advice to family members on talking with their loved ones about their cancer.
Dr. Ryan’s goal of writing this book is to make patients active participants in their treatment at home and in the examination room. The knowledge gap between oncologists and patients causes undue anxiety. Anxiety is reduced when cancer patients and their families are well informed and comfortable voicing their concerns to the medical team. Being well-informed on all aspects of this disease will help a cancer patient to reduce stress, conquer fears and ultimately become a cancer survivor. www.whentumoristherumorandcanceristheanswer.com
