About this item

The American Cancer Society's Principles of Oncology: Prevention to Survivorship is a modern textbook covering a range of topics that are key to a multidisciplinary approach to cancer and critical to cancer control. It covers the causes of cancer, prevention and early detection, cancer biology, diagnosis, and staging. A final section discusses symptom management, palliative care, complications, survivorship, and surrounding issues such as fertility and sexuality after cancer, and psychiatric complications. Designed for a wide range of learners and practitioners, this resource places special emphasis on cancer prevention, screening, and follow-up, which are central to the American Cancer Society's worldwide mission on cancer control.

Developed by the American Cancer Society, this new textbook covers: descriptive epidemiology; fundamentals of cancer epidemiology; socioeconomic inequalities in cancer incidence and mortality; counseling and testing for inherited predisposition to cancer; microbial, environmental, and occupational carcinogens; screening and early detection; principles and drivers of cancer; imaging in oncology; the pathologic evaluation of neoplastic diseases; radiotherapy; cytotoxic chemotherapy; hormonal therapy; hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; diet, physical activity, and weight control for patients and survivors; clinical trials; geriatric oncology; supportive care; sexuality and fertility; psychiatric issues in cancer patients; survivorship care; and more.

Reflects day-to-day decision-making and clinical practice based on the expertise of medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists, radiologists and pathologists, primary care clinicians, epidemiologists, cancer biologists, and other clinical specialists.
