Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's actually the first time cancer has made any sense - in a well ordered format which makes it easy to follow, the text, key boxes, flow diagrams, pictures and CT scan images all help to guide the reader through this little gem. After the well written introduction to the topic, the cancers are all categorised in separate chapters so it is easy to find exactly what you are after if you are just reading the odd section at a time. This book gets a thumbs up." Black Bag, Bristol University Medical School Gazette

"This book is an overview suitable for all undergraduates with brief descriptions of epidemiology, pathogenesis, presentation and treatment and prognosis in most chapters. There are excellent chapters on the basis of cancer insight into the psychology and social aspects of 'cancer and people' including the effects of cancer care on the doctors. Succinct and well populated with diagrams and photos." Surgo, Glasgow University Medical School Gazette, 78:4

"Aficionados of the Lecture Notes series expecting a core text won't be disappointed with this newest addition. Each of the cancers a medical student needs to be familiar with has an individual chapter dedicated to it. Every chapter includes the necessary information about the epidemiology, presentation and management of that particular cancer - providing a good summary for those doing their oncology placement." QMM Magazine, Birmingham University
