In Thyroid Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management, Leonard Wartofsky, MD, past president of the American Thyroid Association, has brought together a panel of world-class clinicians to critically review all aspects of thyroid cancer from pathogenesis to prognosis, including management and treatment. Organized for rapid access by busy physicians, the book covers both differentiated tumors (papillary carcinoma and follicular carcinoma) and undifferentiated cancers (anaplastic carcinoma, lymphoma, and medullary carcinoma), as well as miscellaneous and unusual cancers of the thyroid. For each tumor type the authors succinctly discuss the key aspects of their clinical presentation, cytology, diagnosis, nuclear isotope scanning evaluation, imaging by MRI or CT, surgery, pathology, post-operative care, monitoring, and prognosis. Additional chapters survey future therapeutic directions involving tumor markers, cancer-causing genes, DNA ploidy, new approaches to chemotherapy, and advances in radiotherapy. Authoritative and evidenced-based, Thyroid Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management provides in one place everything that physicians treating thyroid cancer patients need to know. With its emphasis on practical clinical management, it is today's definitive reference on thyroid cancer
