About this book


This volume will introduce new terminology to the field of oncology, subdividing it into oncokinetics—the mechanics of the tumor cells as they arise and spread throughout the body—and oncodynamics—the impact of abnormal cues generated by tumors on the physiological functioning of the body. The volume will outline the importance of oncodynamics from both a cancer patient’s and a caregiver’s perspectives, stressing its significant impact on cancer patient functionality and the opportunity that cancer researchers will have to develop cross-disciplinary interactions and predict potential consequences of tumors and/or treatment.
