About this book


Delay in the diagnosis of cancer in general practice can cause distress to every physician. This useful manual aims to aid the general practitioner in a timely diagnosis. Written using the author's long-time experience from consultations and research in general practice, it is a well-organized and vital reference. Emphasis is laid upon the early clues of cancer (Red Flags), organ systems (Thinking Anatomy), and frequency tables (Thinking Probabilities). For every professional who would like to put more knowledge and understanding into his consultations, thereby possibly prolonging or saving lives, this is an invaluable handbook.
