Description

This text gives a systematic account of what is currently known about the epidemiology and primary prevention for most forms of human cancer. Part 1 provides an introduction to basic concepts in epidemiology, a description of the global burden of cancer, definitions and characterisations of the various measures used, and approaches used to reveal genetic determinants of cancer risk and integrate biologic markers in the epidemiologic research process. Part 2 contains chapters of uniform structure on over 20 types of cancer, providing clinical and pathological outlines, descriptive epidemiology, and a comprehensive account of risk factors and their etiological importance. Specific sections address somatic and germ cell mutations that play a role in the occurrence of particular forms of cancer.show more

Review quote

"This is an excellent book on cancer epidemiology...It provides a nice background section and reiterates the concepts important to study design. The chapters by cancer site are concise and well written to provide health professionals with the information they need for work in their own areas in cancer prevention. This second edition is a nice update, in particular on the advances in genetic and molecular epidemiology over the past five years."--Doody's "This is an excellent book on cancer epidemiology...It provides a nice background section and reiterates the concepts important to study design.
