James Bishop, "Cancer Facts: A Concise Oncology Text"
English | ISBN: 9057024705, 9057023652 | 1999 | 420 pages | PDF | 3 MB
This work provides cancer incidence, mortality, risks, trends and management information distilled into a concise text. It aims to bridge the gap between the information in general medical and surgical texts and the large oncology reference volumes used by practicing oncologists. Topics covered include epidemiology, basic medical science, major treatment modalities, oncological emergencies, cancer in AIDS patients, and the doctor-patient relationship. For ease of reference, Fast Fact Sheets present the key data on lung, breast, colorectal and prostate cancer, melanoma, and tumours of the endocrine system.
