How to Beat Cancer

By Karol Sikora

So you have cancer and want to survive? You need to make sure you get the best treatment possible. But most healthcare systems – whether public or private – are run by doctors for doctors. Very few of them are willing to treat patients as customers.

If you know which buttons to press however, and how to play the system to your own advantage, you will get the best care available.


‘How to Beat Cancer: Play The System and Stay Alive’ is a new type of health book designed for the 21st century. Written by Karol Sikora, one of the world’s leading cancer specialists, it is a sharp, incisive guide to how you can play the system so that it works for you.

Easy-to-read and accessible, it will ensure that everyone is empowered with the same information as the experts – and have the insider knowledge to make sure they get the best treatment from their physician and the health system.
