Practical Clinical Oncology is a hands-on review of all aspects of practice in clinical oncology. The introductory section to the book provides background information on the four main treatment modalities - radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and biological therapy - plus research, oncological emergencies and palliative care. Subsequent chapters describe the diagnosis and treatment of all malignancies, based on tumour site or type. Each chapter follows a standard template, making it easier for the readers to locate information quickly; multiple choice questions are also provided to enable the reader to test their knowledge. With an emphasis on practical information which will be useful in day-to-day decision-making and treatment, Practical Clinical Oncology is an invaluable resource on clinical care of the cancer patient for all trainees in clinical oncology, medical oncology, surgical oncology and palliative care, as well as specialist nurses and radiographers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Practical Clinical Oncology is the right size, organized into punchy paragraphs and covers the field. Perfect. I think it is the best book on the subject I have seen. It moves along and is not boring. I find much of the perspectives in agreement with my own.' A. Robert Kagan, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Los Angeles
'I very much enjoyed reading through this text ... it does a fantastic job of providing a comprehensive yet concise overview of cancer (diagnosis to therapy) ... this text fills the gap between the two and provides a better understanding of chemotherapetics' Magan DeHaan, Resident, Radiation Oncology, Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles
