Tumors of the Chest: Biology, Diagnosis and Management

Front Cover
Konstantinos N. Syrigos, Christopher M. Nutting, C. Roussos
Springer Science & Business Media, Oct 6, 2006 - Medical - 685 pages

The purpose of this textbook is to meticulously depict all aspects of chest tumors in a comprehensive volume format that encompasses their biology, clinical presentation and management. It is the only book to do this. Chapters of specific interest have also been included to cover such wide-ranging topics as management of the elderly and chemoprevention, along with ethical, social and financial issues associated with such tumors. All participating authors, selected from an international panel of highly regarded scientists currently pioneering lung cancer research, are major contributors in the area of expertise they have been chosen to present.
