A cancer diagnosis is always bad news, but the words "You have cancer" don't necessarily instill the fear and confusion they did three decades ago. This program demystifies cancer by explaining how varieties of the disease typically begin and develop. The program also highlights some of the innovative treatments that are helping more and more patients to become cancer survivors. In addition, scientists discuss the importance of early detection in giving cancer patients more treatment options. Commentators include Dr. Vincent DeVita, former director of the National Cancer Institute; Dr. Robert Figlin of City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center; and Dr. Michael Atkins of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
