Human neoplasms form a large group of diseases of varying incidence, site, anatomical extent, pathology, clinical course and prognosis, suitability for surgery and responsiveness to ionizing radiation, chemical agents and hormones. This variability of features, characterizing diseases traditionally designated by a common term, and the variability of methods used for their diagnosis and treatment call for a collective approach to all problems connected with the clinical management of cancer.
