An uncommon tumor presents a difficult challenge to the clinician as advice on diagnosis, treatment, and therapy is scarce. Rather than spend extended periods of time researching each new presentation of an uncommon cancer, the Textbook of Uncommon Cancer provides the clinician with all the information and advice needed in one comprehensive guide.

The fifth edition of this authoritative and unique text has been fully revised with new material and an evidence–based, teach–by–example approach in order to deliver unparalleled insight on real–world decision–making in the clinical setting. Where evidence is scarce, the authors provide paradigms on how they address the relevant issues from first principles. Contributions are made by highly experienced and senior teams of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other specialists, giving a balanced and complete overview on how to address each malignancy. New to this edition are the following:

 An increased focus on gene expressions to refine diagnosis.
 The inclusion of heat maps to show this gene expression.
 An increased focus on explaining histopathology.

Textbook of Uncommon Cancer enables readers to improve their quality of care by providing expert collation of limited evidence–based and clinical data. Beautifully designed with full color throughout, this is the ideal resource for the clinician inexperienced in treating rare tumors.
