About the Book

This original book in the Problem Solving Series, this volume brings together the thinking in both investigation and management of the cancer patient. It presents a comprehensive caseload as seen by the oncologist with common yet challenging real-life patient scenarios. 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. This book is an essential companion for the oncologist, for the specialist in other areas seeking to improve his understanding of cancer, and for the interested GP.
