First published in 1989, this easy, quick reference details the ongoing clinical trials, their rationale and some early results in surgical oncology. Each chapter covers a major tumor site from epidemiology, etiology, screening, diagnostic methods, prognosis, staging, the various therapeutic approaches for each disease, and the follow up of the patients. The surgical options available in the management of cancer patients, the preoperative decisions and preparations, operative and postoperative management, the value of adjuvant therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal manipulation, and immunotherapy in the primary management of each disease are presented. The palliative management by various disciplinary approaches is also discussed. In addition, the book details the management of some hematologic disorders. All medical disciplines involved in the care of cancer patients will find this a valuable publication.
