The American Cancer Society s Oncology in Practice: Clinical Management is a new textbook designed for a wide range of learners and practitioners. It comprehensively addresses diagnosis, treatment, and follow–up of more than 50 types of cancer, taking a balanced, authoritative and, where possible, evidence–based stance.

Edited by leading clinicians in the field, chapters from a stellar list of US and European contributors are written in an easy to understand style by multidisciplinary teams including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, and other specialists, reflecting day–to–day decision–making and clinical practice. This book is an ideal resource for anyone seeking a comprehensive understanding of the field of oncology, with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment.
