This easy-to-read, practical guide distils and compiles all the disparate literature on cancer into one succinct volume. With most of the topics fitting onto a double-page spread it allows for quick reference whilst on the ward. The text also includes the essential, evidence-based clinical guidelines needed for the safe and effective management of patients with cancer.

All aspects of cancer and its management are covered, including prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment. This practical guide also offers information about coping with the physical and social issues that may arise with a diagnosis of cancer, such as insurance, travel and survivorship. A unique chapter of management flow charts assists fast, appropriate decision-making. Multidisciplinary management and palliative care are also covered in detail.
