Descrizione prodotto


Should all patients be informed when they’ve been diagnosed with cancer? If the answer is “yes,” Who should break the bad news to them? And How is such news best delivered? How much of the truth can a patient handle?

Patients’ inalienable right to know the truth about their condition ought to be guaranteed the world over. Yet this right is routinely violated. In Greece, for example, cancer patients are frequently kept in the dark about their diagnosis. In fact, this right is routinely disregarded all over the globe with appalling consequences.

In “The Right To The Truth,” the author—a thoracic surgeon—presents Counterexamples inspired by events observed during 33 years of clinical experience, and he addresses each with well-crafted Arguments in favor of the patients’ Right to know :

► for Trust
► for Protection from predators who would exploit vulnerable patients
► for understanding that Sacrifices are sometimes required to achieve cure
► for acquiring well-founded Hope
► for Overcoming fear of the unknown

The book :

► offers advice to family members of cancer patients, as it is usually they who shoulder the burden of deciding whether or not to have their loved one informed.

► offers thought–provoking ideas for those who care for cancer patients. Physicians, nurses, psychologists, clergy, and friends are all urged to be truthful with patients; lying leads only to suffering.

► repudiates hypocritical arguments that claim withholding the truth from patients “spares them avoidable distress,” when the exact opposite is true. The hypocrisy behind brazen deceit inevitably becomes a source of harm to the patient. Myriad unethical, even illegal, wrongdoings are exposed that they should be banned from clinical practice once and for all.—


I'm a thoracic surgeon and current Head of the Thoracic Surgery Department at the 424 Military Hospital in Greece. It’s a position I’ve held since 1999. My early years were spent in my hometown, Kalampaka, which lies under Meteora, a picturesque rocky complex with post–Byzantine monasteries built on top. I studied Medicine at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece. I’ve been practicing Medicine since 1988. I began my specialist–training initially in Athens, Greece, then continued in the United Kingdom cities of London, Glasgow and Belfast. I’m a former Regent of the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons for Greece (2005–2010). My areas of interest include lung cancer, bioethics, medical ethics, and medical documentation. Click on this link  for more details about my scientific and medical work: I serve as a Colonel in the Hellenic Army Medical Corps. My inspiration for writing emerged from career milestones and other events in diverse geographical locations and cities in the UK, Greece, the United States, France and elsewhere. My first three books were written and published in 2016, two in Greek and one in English: In favor of: —coffee (lots of coffee) —wire fox terriers —humanism —history —photography —design and —reading.
