Gastrointestinal cancer includes cancer of the digestive system - the esophagus, colon, rectum, anus, liver, pancreas, and other digestive organs. Taken as a whole, there are an estimated 250,600 new cases in the US. Colon and rectum cancer is the third leading cause of cancer and cancer deaths in the US. Gastrointestinal Cancer is the third volume in the M.D. Anderson Cancer Care series, featuring the current standard approach to GI cancer care from the experts at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Designed for the practicing oncologist, this clinical guidebook allows for quick, authoritative access to the latest and best multimodality therapies. Topics covered in this volume include AJCC staging of gastrointestinal malignancies, recent advances in histopathology of gastroinestinal cancers, imaging techniques and endoscopy in the management of GI malignancies, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, gastric cancer, esophageal cancer, anal cancer, and palliative therapy. Each of the 20 chapters ends with an up-to-date list of suggested readings, as well as "key practice points" highlighting the most principles and practices of each chapter for at-a-glance reference. More than 80 illustrations complement the text. This thorough, practical volume is the essential clinical guide for the oncologists, surgeons, and all physicians involved in the care of patients with GI cancer.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This is the third volume of the MD Anderson Cancer Care Series, detailing their standard approach to care of patients with gastrointestinal cancer. It emphasises the day-to-day aspects of medical care, minimising both extensive literature review and approaches not yet incorporated into routine practice. It is a pleasant soft-backed volume of 394 pages with 61 diagrams and scans; there are also liberal tables. … a useful addition to every departmental library." (Dr. C. L. Harmer, RAD Magazine, November, 2005)
