"The Oxford Handbook of Oncology" is a practical guide to the clinical consultation in oncology. Covering the scientific basis, as well as diagnosis, it includes investigations, management and palliative care issues in cancer. It has been extensively revised and updated for the new edition to reflect recent advances in oncology with particular emphasis on new therapies. It includes new approaches to diagnosis and treatment and there is an expanded section on oncological emergencies with practical advice for immediate patient management. The first part covers the general principles of cancer aetiology, the key treatment modalities, namely, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy, and the development of novel therapies through clinical trials. This is followed by a systematic account of the current management of individual cancers according to their site of origin. Each chapter includes epidemiology, pathology, staging, treatment, and prognosis. This part also contains an outline of current areas of research and appropriate references to guide the reader to more detailed oncology publications. The third part of the book provides information to aid in the day-to-day management of cancer patients, including practical advice on symptom control and the assessment and treatment of oncological emergencies. This handbook is the essential guide to practical management of everyday clinical situations and will be invaluable to junior doctors in oncology, palliative care and general medicine, as well as specialist nurses, general practitioners, medical students, pharmacists and professions allied to medicine.
