Description

This comprehensive text is the first to define and address the broad spectrum of acute and chronic internal medicine disorders that occur in cancer patients and cancer survivors as side-effects of the disease itself, or from treatment regimens.

Recent therapeutic advances in cancer treatment indicate that rather than a killer, cancer is becoming a chronic disease. The authors cover non-oncologic aspects of internal medicine such as anorexia, obesity, bone loss, diabetes, depression, pain, fatigue, congestive heart failure, skin disorders, and pneumonia. This book is conceived as a companion to standard internal medicine and oncology texts a comprehensive reference resource for internists caring for cancer patients and oncologists in practice. The text is extensively indexed for easy access and retrieval of information.
