Item description for Cancer: How Worthwhile Is Non-Curative Treatment? by Maurice L. Slevin...
The majority of patients present with extensive cancer and, as a result, most of these have to be treated with 'non-curative' intent. This major and difficult problem has not been previously tackled and this book asks questions such as how does non-curative intent relate to good quality and quantity of life and how effective is this treatment at relieving symptoms? The result is a review of non-curative surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy which are all discussed as they relate to the different types and locations of tumours. This book is aimed not just at specialist oncologists but at all those who are involved in the treatment of cancer. Postgraduate students and those new to the area of oncology will find the book a worthwhile review of treatment undertaken with purely palliative intent.
