ABOUT THIS BOOK
Three practicing doctors present the stories of nine individuals diagnosed with brain tumors.
 
Humanizing Brain Tumors details the lived experiences of patients and their loved ones, from the presentation of symptoms to diagnosis and treatment. These nine test cases and the accompanying compendium offer insight and guidance to anyone living with, caring for, or treating those with brain tumors. Written with a humanistic, yet realistic touch, the authors have created a resource that reminds readers of the important partnership between doctors, patients, and caregivers.
 
This collection delves into our modern understanding of brain tumors, using clinical presentation to illustrate the patient experience and summarize methods of treatment. Imagery, including both MRI scans and medical illustrations, facilitates a vivid description of neuroanatomy. Providing a concise description of modern forms of treatment for patients affected with brain tumors, this book presents a patient-centric perspective.

Humanizing Brain Tumors will appeal to the hundreds of thousands of patients and their loved ones who are affected by brain tumors every year.
