ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTORS
The essays were compiled by experienced medical writers, including physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and other health care professionals. The advisors reviewed the completed essays to ensure that they are appropriate, up-to-date, and medically accurate.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK
The Gale Encyclopedia of Cancer has been designed with ready reference in mind.
- Valuable contact information for organizations and support groups is included with each cancer type entry. Appendix II at the back of Volume II contains an extensive list of organizations arranged in alphabetical order.
- Straight alphabetical arrangement of topics allows users to locate information quickly.
- Bold-faced terms within entries direct the reader to related articles.
- A comprehensive general index guides readers to all topics mentioned in the text.
- A list of key terms is provided where appropriate to define unfamiliar terms or concepts.
- A list of questions to ask the doctor is provided whenever appropriate to help facilitate discussion with the patient's physician.
- Cross-references placed throughout the encyclopedia direct readers from alternate names and related topics to entries.
- The Resources section for non-drug entries directs readers to additional sources of medical information on a topic.
- A note about drug entries:Drug entries are listed in alphabetical order by common generic names. However, because many oncology drugs have more than one common generic name, and because in many cases, the brand name is also often used interchangeably with a generic name, drugs can be located in one of three ways. The reader can: find the generic drug name in alphabetical order, be directed to the entry from an alternate name cross-reference, or use the index to look up a brand name, which will direct the reader to the equivalent generic name entry. If the reader would like more information about oncology drugs than these entries provide, the reader is encouraged to consult with a physician, pharmacist, or the reader may find helpful any one of a number of books about cancer drugs. Two that may be helpful are: D. Solimando's Drug Information Handbook for Oncology, or R. Ellerby's Quick Reference Handbook of Oncology Drugs.

GRAPHICS
The Gale Encyclopedia of Cancer contains over 200 full-color illustrations, photos and tables. Eleven illustrations of various body systems can be found in the front matter of the book, and these can help the reader to understand which cancers may affect which organs, and how the various systems interact.
