Written by current and former surgical oncology fellows of the world-renowned M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, this portable handbook is a practical guide to established surgical oncology principles for each organ system. This new Third Edition features extensive updates, especially on breast cancer (axillary node dissection), new chemotherapeutic regimens, and sentinel node biopsy. Concise chapters illustrated with algorithms and line drawings outline the essential elements of diagnosis, staging, and clinical management of solid tumours treated in surgical practice. The authors emphasise multidisciplinary treatment planning, including therapy sequencing and biological therapies.
