Introduction Cancer is one of the most prevalent life threatening conditions
that affecting men and women. Much research has been devoted to preventing, detecting, and treating the various forms of cancer. The primary focus has been on mainstream clinical
intervention in fighting this disease. As Sherwood, Given, Given, et. al. (2005) demonstrate in their research, the possibilities that are yet to be explored regarding the most effective treatment
regimes and tactics to reduce symptoms in the various forms of cancer are practically endless.
Ethics Cancer is an extremely personal disease. Breast cancer, for example, impacts a woman not just physiologically but
also emotionally. Prostate cancer, such as that addressed by Sherwood, Given, Given, et. al. (2005), has similar impacts for its male victims. This necessitates even more care than
would typically be employed in medical intervention tactics to insure that the personal integrity of study subjects is protected. Intervention in fighting the more personal types of cancer in
particular necessitates careful attention to ethical conduct. Informed consent, for example, is a particular necessity in recruiting these subjects into screening and treatment programs. Informed consent, however, should be
a prerequisite for all health care programs. Guido (1999, 43) defines informed consent as authorization by either the patient or the legal representative of the patient:
"to do something to the patient and is based on legal capacity, voluntary action and comprehension"
