If you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with colon cancer, you'll want to read Dr. Mark Pochapin's new book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Colorectal Cancer. Pochapin is a colon cancer specialist who treated Jay Monahan, the husband of "Today" show anchor Katie Couric. After her husband's death from the disease, Couric became a passionate advocate for colon cancer screening, even submitting to a televised colonoscopy. In her foreword, Couric writes, "This book provides the information I wish I had before Jay became ill." Pochapin describes prevention methods, screening techniques, diagnosis and treatment. Straightforward but encouraging throughout, this book is a wonderful resource for patients and their families.
