Book News Annotation:

Neither a treatise on cancer research nor a compendium of published literature, but a reference for practicing clinicians emphasizing the clinical approach to cancer patients. The 24 studies are unified by the effective integration of multidisciplinary management, and most of them are co-authored by a surgeon, medical oncologist, and radiation oncologist. They highlight critical decision points in the management process, but also discuss tumor biology in terms of clinical relevance; surgical treatment options and alternatives based on tumor stage and biology; systemic treatment with chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and other agents along with related clinical prognostic factors, treatment indications, toxicity, and tumor response; and radiation therapy techniques, treatment planning, dose and duration of therapy, morbidity, and results. The types of cancers considered include breast, esophageal, gastric, small intestine, appendiceal, colorectal, and anal.
