Rogue Cells

A Conversation on the Myths and Mysteries of Cancer

A compelling guide to understanding cancer and embracing life.

Rogue Cells is the essential guide to navigating cancer diagnosis and treatment. Coauthored by Dr. Richard J. Jones, an internationally renowned cancer physician and researcher, and T. Michael McCormick, this guide provides the important information that patients and physicians need to approach cancer with more hope and less worry and fear.

With an engaging blend of science and humor, Jones and McCormick discuss everything from the causes of cancer to preventative measures and treatment options. Their goal is to educate and reassure readers by translating the science into everyday conversational language covering the biology of cancer, the state of current research, prospects for treatment, and different ways to approach a diagnosis.

For anyone who wants to understand the mechanisms of cancer and how best to make informed decisions about diagnosis and treatment, this work offers a guide to the cancer journey, and how best to navigate it.
