Description

The present text on “Practical Clinical Oncology” is welcome, important and necessary. This is the first composite Indian text on cancer, written by numerous well-known oncologists and other distinguished doctors associated with the diagnosis and management of cancer, working in our country. Majority of health care problems are often entwined with socio-economic conditions and lifestyle issues. Cancer is no exception. Demographic factors show a continuing rise in its frequency and incidence. In an era of information overload and practice changing paradigms in cancer, a sense of equipoise needs to be maintained. One more text on “CANCER” may appear superfluous and yet the authors contend that the vast majority of our busy oncologists, surgeons, physicians and pathologists working beyond the academic and tertiary cancer centers need a practical approach to the commonly occurring cancers in our country. This, in essence, is the primary objective of this compilation. The authors therefore address only commonly occurring solid tumors, the lymphoproliferative disorders and common neuro-oncology problems. Rare and uncommon cancers have been excluded. This book, therefore, is indeed not a treatise on cancer.
