Product description

This 3rd edition of the successful Oxford Handbook of Oncology, remains, like previous editions, a practical guide to clinical consultations in oncology. It details new approaches to diagnosis, treatment and the principles of palliative care. Now fully updated, extensively revised and featuring additional images and further reading, this new edition provides coverage of the scientific basis and diagnosis, as well as updates on new drugs, biomarkers, the presentation of childhood cancers in adults, and the psychosocial aspects of oncology. An essential guide to the management of everyday clinical situations, this new edition reflects all the recent advances in the field of oncology in a user-friendly and easily accessible format. It will be invaluable to junior doctors in oncology, palliative care, and general medicine, as well as specialist nurses, general practitioners, medical students, pharmacists, and allied health professionals.
