Overview

4 Stars! from Doody

This book presents a synopsis of oral cancers, and reviews of etiology, diagnosis, and management of these diseases. This text is designed to provide a simple but comprehensive reference for dental practitioners who have the unique opportunity for detection of malignant neoplasms in an early state. Information is provided regarding the biologic and epidemiologic aspects of oral cancer, its prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation, and understanding of the psychosocial and economic aspects of the disease. This objective is successfully met through the use of informative color photos and text reviewing examples of clinical cases. This text is intended for dental practitioners, as well as pre- and postgraduate students who will benefit from the comprehensive nature of the text and clear, informative tables and pictures. The editor is well recognized on this subject matter. This book is structured as a survey of oral cancers. It deals with squamous cell carcinoma in great detail in the first eight chapters. The etiology, diagnosis, and management of other solid tumors are discussed, followed by leukemias, lymphomas, salivary, and finally HIV-associated oral malignancies. The unique aspect of this book is the overview of pediatric oncology citing oral/dental implications. It is presented in an easy-to-use format for any general practitioner or specialist. There appear to be no significant shortcomings. In comparison to other textbooks published on oral cancer, this book presents material in a less detailed and comprehensive fashion. This is intentional, as the goal is to provide a simple and easy-to-use guide for detecting oral cancers and understandingtheir etiology and treatment. This allows dentists to make referrals to other specialists when they identify these problems. Therefore, this book would serve as a necessary reference in their practices.
