TheABC of Lung Cancer is a concise, up–to–date evidence–based review of one of the most common cancers in the western world. Written by primary care physicians, cancer nurses and specialists, this book provides a reference for the healthcare professional in caring and treating the lung cancer patient in the most appropriate way.

This new title covers the epidemiology and diagnosis of lung cancer, focusing particularly on primary care issues such as what symptoms require urgent investigation, and when to refer to a specialist. It follows the launch of a UK Lung cancer guideline by NICE and is written by many of the specialists involved in that publication. This is a practical guide for those involved in the care of the lung cancer patient.
