Summary

In this valuable new book, an expert in general practice and an expert in oncology have brought together their different and complementary experiences to provide primary care teams with an up to date review of the management of patients with cancer. The layout of the book allows the primary care clinician easy access to all the information needed to respond appropriately to enquiries from cancer patients or anxious family members. Respected specialists in Oncology, Surgery and Palliative Care have described each of the major types of cancer affecting adults and children, giving an expert digest of the basic scientific information and an overview of treatment regimens. The concise text is supported by over 100 tables, 50 charts and diagrams and 30 photographs to ensure readability. Book jacket.
