Cancer in Primary Care by Martin E. Gore
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this valuable new book, an oncology consultant and a family practitioner have brought together complementary experiences of dealing with cancer to help primary care physicians meet clinical demands. With input from respected specialists in oncology, surgery and palliative care, Cancer in Primary Care profiles each of the major types of cancer in adults and children. Risk factors, epidemiology and demographic data are presented, with comment on diagnostic and screening issues. The authors then discuss management options and review therapy choices along with their prognostic implications. Numerous tables, charts and diagrams support the concise text, with key points summarized in highlighted panels. Each section concludes with up-to-date information on current research and on-going trials, as well as contact details for support groups for patients and their families. Other topics include pain management, terminal illness and provision of palliative care, and dealing with bereavement. Throughout the book, the authors emphasize the needs of the patient, and the importance of effectively-and objectively-communicating the full implications of difficult choices. This highly readable book should find a place in every doctor's office.
