The case for organ preservation using conservative surgery and radiation therapy is clearly established for many tumour sites. This has offered the prospect of cure without disfigurement and with the preservation of functional competence. However, failure to understand the exacting requirements of conservation therapy can result in needless loss of life that could have been saved by the more radical approaches. This volume brings together many of the world's foremost authorities who discuss their extensive clinical experience and clearly define when organ conservation is or is not indicated. They cover the latest advances in diagnosis and radiation therapy, as these are critical to the success of the new approaches. Important aspects of organ preservation in curative cancer therapy are presented for each of the major tumour sites, with an emphasis on the treatment of breast cancer. Of further interest are the insights offered into the therapy of ENT tumours.
