Cancer is the second-leading cause of death among women in the United States, after heart disease, but in recent years incidence rates have stabilized and mortality has decreased for many of the top cancers in women. With improved screening programs and innovative treatments, women diagnosed with cancer now have a better chance than ever of overcoming the disease.

Cancer Sourcebook for Women, 5th Edition offers information about cancers of special concern to women, including breast cancer, gynecologic cancers, and cancers responsible for the most deaths in women, with information included on risk factors, diagnosis, and treatment.
