SUMMARY

Despite major advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, it remains a major worldwide killer, and its prevention is still the best method of control. In Cancer Screening: A Practical Guide for Physicians, a panel of highly experienced clinicians and researchers from around the world describe screening techniques for a wide variety of cancers. The techniques range from screening for breast, gynecological, and gastrointestinal cancers, to testing for urogenital, dermatological, and respiratory cancers. In addition to providing the busy practitioner with quick access to guidelines for particular cancers, the epidemiology and biology of the various cancers, as well as the sensitivity and specificity of the methods, are discussed in detail. A cross-cultural review of stomach cancer in Japan and esophageal cancer in China reveals the use of both high-tech diagnostic methods, such as chromoscopy and photofluorography, and low cost but highly effective methods, such as balloon scraping. Current and future applications of molecular genetics, as well as new radiological methods in cancer screening, are also discussed in an authoritative and easy-to-read presentation. Cancer Screening: A Practical Guide for Physicians offers to all internists, oncologists, various subspecialists, and primary care physicians a concise practical review of cancer screening designed specifically for daily use in the consulting room
