Summary
Last in a four-part series about the medical and personal complexities of cancer. This segment highlights prevention models that have led to reductions in the incidence of cancer by prompting changes in behaviors and medical procedures. Correlates the discontinuation of tobacco and alcohol use with a lower susceptibility to throat cancer. Demonstrates the effectiveness of the PSA test in screening for prostate cancer, and how test results may suggest a variety of options. Examines efforts in the manufacturing sector to protect workers from carcinogens, and ways in which scientists link carcinogenic risk to environmental substances. This series sets the medical and personal complexities of cancer into an easily understood framework and is designed to facilitate decisions involving the disease - whether those decisions are preventive in nature or are part of a treatment process, the programs are an important resource for patients, health care providers, instructors, and support group participants alike
