  • Details

This new volume brings together the current thinking in both investigation and management of the cancer patient.

It presents a comprehensive caseload as seen by the oncologist. These are common yet challenging real-life patient scenarios, which the authors resolve by drawing on the latest published literature. Each case begins with a few practical questions to stimulate the reader. This is followed by clinical presentation and the reader is led through the logical work-up of a case to reach a diagnosis. An algorithm accompanies most cases to provide a rapid pictorial overview of the clinical steps involved. Essential references are provided. Each of the major areas of cancer is covered, along with pain, management of chemotherapy, and psychological issues.
