Editorial Reviews

"Here, an international panel of experts describe screening techniques and provide concise summaries of current guidelines." - Consultant"This is a very interesting and useful book. It covers a wide variety of cancers and gives a thorough overview of them...This text would be a useful addition to an institutional library where it could be used by medical students coming to terms with cancer care and screening. This is an up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the area and, as such, I would recommend it." - Cancer Forum"This is really an easy-to-read book which can be helpful daily in the consulting room of oncologists, internists, various specialists and primary care physicians, as well as those responsible for the development of public health policies." - Neoplasma"I was impressed with the objectivity of most chapters. Prostate and colorectal screening chapters were very clearly done using evidence-based data. The skin cancer screening chapter was very well illustrated with sound recommendations." - Oncology
