Summary:
This book is about cancer and about the research in psychosocial and biobehavioral oncology that is underway to help control it. It is about the advent, implementation, and evaluation of interventions to modify behaviors, beliefs, and risk factors associated with the onset, progression and recurrence of cancer. It is also about the underlying excitement of discovery and purpose. As this new field grows and our knowledge of cancer and its causes develops, psychosocial interventions will become more targeted and more successful. The rapidly growing literature on psychosocial interventions and cancer strongly indicates that behavioral phenomena and modification of them can affect whether people develop cancer, how they respond to treatment, and in some cases how long they live.
