About the Authors
  • Practical Clinical Oncology, 2nd edition, provides a practical and comprehensive review of the current management of common types of cancer. Introductory chapters give background information on the main treatment modalities and other key issues such as acute oncology, palliative care and clinical research, with new chapters on pathology and advanced external beam radiotherapy. Subsequent chapters describe the diagnosis and treatment of malignancies, based on tumour site or type. Finally, multiple choice questions allow the reader to test their knowledge. This edition has been fully updated to reflect the most current developments in radiotherapy, tumour biology and drug therapy. With an emphasis on practical aspects of cancer care that will be relevant to day-to-day decision making, this book is an invaluable resource on contemporary clinical management of the cancer patient for all trainees and practitioners involved in clinical oncology, medical oncology and palliative care, as well as for specialist nurses and radiographers.

    • Many chapters contain a section on areas of current interest relevant to the chapter topic, which gives the reader information on the most recent developments in this rapidly changing field
    • Consistent chapter format makes it simple for readers to assimilate information quickly and easily
    • An introductory section on generic topics followed by chapters divided into tumour site and type means it is easy to navigate and locate specific information quickly, making it an ideal book for trainees preparing for examination or for practical use in a clinical setting
    • Brand new chapters on advanced radiotherapy techniques and pathology
