(create) Recent developments in biomedical cancer research have resulted in a rapid expansion of cancer prevention and control options (Curry, Byers, & Hewitt, 2003; Edwards et al., 2005). These advances have been accompanied by an explosion of psychosocial research in the areas of cancer risk, disease, and survivorship. The findings of this research have established a key role for behavioral and psychosocial variables in determining such outcomes as individuals' risk for cancer, their decision making about disease management and treatment options, and their behavioral choices and quality of life during and after treatment. The present volume is designed to synthesize what is known, what is suspected, and what is still unknown about the core biobehavioral and sociocultural aspects of cancer prevention and control. It provides a comprehensive and unifying overview of the main areas of research in this area, integrating basic and applied research in the behavioral and social sciences with biomedical advances. This introductory chapter discusses behavioral science in cancer control research; the cancer control continuum; the role of behavior in cancer control; an integrative framework for cancer control and behavioral science; and emerging themes and future directions in research.
