Globally, cancer is becoming an extremely important health problem, including in countries where it has historically not been considered a priority. Increases in longevity, together with high tobacco use and the growing prevalence of obesity, have all contributed to rapidly rising cancer rates in many low income countries with scarce resources for treatment. Prevention, therefore, is essential.
This all–new book includes background information on prevention and screening, for quick reference by researchers and, especially, clinicians. While offering up to date information for clinical application of the most recent techniques in prevention and screening of all major and many lesser cancer types, the editors and authors also emphasise the importance of multidisciplinary teamwork in cancer screening. Readers will find careful discussion of the dilemmas and difficulties encountered during cancer screening, as well as clear–cut clinical strategies for optimal patient education, communication, and compliance with cancer prevention techniques.
