Cancer is the most common cause of death and morbidity in the elderly. This book provides an extensive review of the effects of age on tolerance of cancer treatments, prevention, and treatment strategies and the influence of age on treatment choice. The authors analyse major clinical trials and highlight emerging issues in geriatric oncology as well as pain control, supportive care, and rehabilitation. It is an exhaustive reference that will enable the practitioner to optimize management of the elderly cancer patient while at the same time providing a state-of-the-art review on the epidemiology, pathology, and biological interaction of ageing and cancer.
