This review highlights the necessity of smoking cessation as a cornerstone of cancer prevention. We briefly review the literature linking smoking to various forms of cancer, the benefits of smoking cessation for cancer patients, and the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research Smoking Cessation Clinical Practice Guideline. Also provided is an update on controlled smoking cessation studies published between March 1995 and February 1996.
