Updated for its Seventh Edition, this pocket manual is a practical, accessible, comprehensive guide to the management of patients with cancer. In an outline format designed for rapid reference, the book provides the essential information needed for fast, effective clinical decision-making at the bedside. Coverage begins with principles of cancer management, proceeds through the specific malignancies, and then focuses on the organ-specific complications of cancer, whether due to the disease or its treatments. The unique appendices permit better readability within the chapters by placing frequently referenced, large, complex, and detailed tables at the end of the book. The appendices present cytogenetic nomenclature, toxicity of chemotherapy, critical tumor identifiers, and combination chemotherapy regimens for lymphomas.
