About this book


In oncology today the accent lies on a multi-disciplinary approach, and consequently this handbook aims to provide wide-ranging information regarding all aspects of the surgical treatment of cancer. It deals with the basic subjects: the biology of cancer, detection and diagnosis, and treatment concepts. From screening to the application of markers, from new transplantation techniques to psychological aspects, an overall picture is presented. The surgeon will find chapters to enhance his knowledge of those areas which may not have required his attention until now. This volume should serve as a valuable reference for many years to come.
