Last nights book launch for Lives interrupted: women with gynaecological cancer was a huge success and we are fortunate enough to have a copy available for loan in our library.

In this book Melbourne gynaecological oncologist David Allen and Oncology social worker Genevieve Green describe the medical and human stories of gynaecological cancer. They explain the different types of gynaecological cancer (cervical; endometrial or uterine; ovarian, fallopian tube and primary peritoneal; vulval, vaginal and gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD)), as well as current treatments and research in the field. Throughout the text, they include case studies or personal stories of women living with gynaecological cancers.

This is just one of the many books we have available in our library. Our extensive range includes titles that cover cancer management, relationships, research, health and well being as well as grief and loss.
