Overview

A world-renowned reference which is published in affiliation with the UICC, the Manual of Clinical Oncology, Seventh Edition provides updated and essential information on cancer detection, identification, diagnosis, and treatment.

Clearly written and detailed, the Seventh Edition presents the most appropriate procedures for the diagnosis and staging of cancer treatment while emphasizing the cost/benefit ratio. In addition, it features two new flowcharts for each cancer discussed: the first follows the most basic diagnostic and staging intervention techniques, while the second includes special, more advanced procedures.

Divided into concise, accessible sections, the Seventh Edition examines such areas as:
*The cellular and molecular biology of cancer
*Cancer etiology, epidemiology, and smoking cessation
*Screening and early detection, diagnosis and pathology, staging and management, surgical principles, and clinical trials
*The specific targeting of cancers by anatomical location, including pain management, rehabilitation, and the psychological aspects of cancer

The Manual of Clinical Oncology, Seventh Edition is an authoritative and indispensable resource for all oncologists, general practitioners, doctors-in-training, and nurses worldwide.

This book will include all of the information required by general practitioners and nurses worldwide for cancer identification, diagnosis, and treatment. The book will build on the success of previous editions in providing a concise and accessible reference filled with practical information about an extensive range of topics. The book will be divided into three sections. The first section will review such areas as cellular and molecular biology of cancer, epidemiology, cancer etiology, smoking cessation, screening and early detection, diagnosis and pathology, staging and management, surgical principles, and clinical trials. The second section will move on to detailed discussions of specific cancers by anatomical location and will include pain and symptom management, rehabilitation, and psychological aspects of cancer. The third and final section will present flow charts for the diagnosis and staging of cancer in developed and developing countries. This is a section that did not appear in previous editions.
