The American Cancer Society′s Principles of Oncology: Prevention to Survivorship is a modern textbook covering a range of topics that are key to a multidisciplinary approach to cancer and critical to cancer control. It covers the causes of cancer, prevention and early detection, cancer biology, diagnosis, and staging. A final section discusses symptom management, palliative care, complications, survivorship, and surrounding issues such as fertility and sexuality after cancer, and psychiatric complications. Designed for a wide range of learners and practitioners, this resource places special emphasis on cancer prevention, screening, and follow–up, which are central to the American Cancer Society′s worldwide mission on cancer control.

Developed by the American Cancer Society, this new textbook covers: descriptive epidemiology; fundamentals of cancer epidemiology; socioeconomic inequalities in cancer incidence and mortality; counseling and testing for inherited predisposition to cancer; microbial, environmental, and occupational carcinogens; screening and early detection; principles and drivers of cancer; imaging in oncology; the pathologic evaluation of neoplastic diseases; radiotherapy; cytotoxic chemotherapy; hormonal therapy; hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; diet, physical activity, and weight control for patients and survivors; clinical trials; geriatric oncology; supportive care; sexuality and fertility; psychiatric issues in cancer patients; survivorship care; and more.
