Head & Neck Cancers: Essentials for Clinicians

2017 ESMO Essentials For Clinicians Head and Neck Cancers block cover

Head & Neck Cancers: Essentials for Clinicians provides the most clinically relevant and updated information for optimal prevention, diagnosis and treatment of this heterogeneous group of tumours.Although classified as rare cancers, head and neck cancers together represent a very large group of malignancies, lying around fifth in terms of absolute worldwide incidence (this volume also includes thyroid cancers).This publication is structured into two sections: one covering the basics of what every oncologist should know and the other providing more advanced information, including discussion of rarer subtypes such as nasopharyngeal cancer and salivary gland cancers.High-quality illustrations and a clear layout make the book an easy-to-use and accessible source of knowledge, and provide a balanced and up-to-date summary of the current state of the art for students and physicians interested in cancers of the head and neck.The title is the sixth in the popular Essentials for Clinicians series, created to explain complicated concepts in the management of tumours in a concise, clear and accessible way, giving the reader a strong theoretical foundation that can then be built upon.
