About this book

Lung cancer is the neoplastic disease with the highest mortality numbers in the world. The disease is very common in industrialized countries. This textbook synthesizes the basic science of lung cancer with state-of-the-art accounts of diagnosis and treatment. Written by a distinguished panel of experts from Europe, Asia, and North America, it covers all of the most important fields: biology, pathology, epidemiology, screening, diagnosis, therapy, supportive care, and prognosis. All physicians caring for patients with lung cancer, especially surgeons, chest physicians, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists, will find a wealth of information that meets their needs. Whenever possible, the principles of evidence-based medicine are followed by providing data from systematic reviews, meta-analyses, methodology-based guidelines, and randomized clinical trials.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Lung cancer is a global epidemic … . Malignant Tumors of the Lung comes at a time when there are more options and perhaps less nihilism in the treatment of this disease. … The high points of the book are the illustrations, tables and charts. This is essential reading for medical professionals involved in the care of patients with lung cancer." (Nithya Ramnath, Oncology, Vol. 67 (56), 2004)
