    Physicians are increasingly recognizing that helping a cancer patient feel good about themselves and about their appearance can be of vital importance in giving them the emotional support and psychological resilience to survive and recover from the side-effects of disease and its treatment. Dermatologists and other aesthetic physicians are in a prime position to help a cancer patient recover lost volume, hydration, and pigmentation in skin, nails, and hair, as well as to advise on nutrition, prostheses, and complentary therapies. This pioneering volume will be an important resource bringing together the expertise in this area, with the practical detail a physician will need.
