Complete with case vignettes, key points, and sidebar summaries to further assist readers using practical tips and tricks, this textbook provides current information on the management and prevention of cancer-related side effects, referring to up-to-date sources that are useful for conducting further research.

Additionally, MASCC Textbook of Cancer Supportive Care and Survivorship, 2nd edition assembles international, multidisciplinary experts who focus on a comprehensive range of symptoms and side effects associated with cancer and its treatment. Over the last five years, much progress has been made in supportive care, helping people cope with the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment and addressing the physical and psychosocial matters of survivorship prior to, during, and after anticancer treatment. This is central to a patient’s wellbeing and the MASCC Textbook of Cancer Supportive Care and Survivorship, 2nd edition, explores not only the diagnosis and treatment, but also the increasingly recognized complex and ongoing symptoms experienced by long term cancer survivors. Significant advances have been made, designing strategies to manage the side effects and symptoms of treatment and to prevent them from occurring, maximizing the person’s ability to pursue daily activities. Reviews of the 1st edition: “This book reviews the management of cancer symptoms in patients and the side effects and late effects of treatment. The focus of the book is on supportive care and survivorship of cancer patients...The book covers symptomatology, medication and treatment, and system function of patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy...Photographs and algorithm charts further illustrate key points. This outstanding book is thorough in its explanations and easy to follow.” (Arlenda C. Thompson, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2011)

Book Description :

Ever wondered if your patient''s new symptoms are a manifestation of metastatic disease, treatment effects or are altogether unrelated to the cancer diagnosis; whether herbal remedies interact with cancer treatment; when to refer for genetic testing; or how to provide informed advice regarding dietary and lifestyle modifications?. This volume answers these and many other questions, spanning from cancer prevention to palliative care. Each chapter is comprehensively referenced, to allow the reader to explore related fields in more detail. The book is unique in summarizing a large amount of information that is beyond conventional oncology textbooks. While cancer is treated by multidisciplinary teams of medical oncologists, hematologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists, other specialists are called upon to treat symptoms, side effects or other diseases that can occur concurrently with cancer. In addition to the physical challenges brought about by a cancer diagnosis, patients and their relatives need sensitive and skilled psychosocial support throughout the cancer journey. The book brings together specialists from a wide range of medical, surgical, psychological and supportive specialties, while keeping the focus on the interdisciplinary management of cancer. Sample Chapter(s). Foreword (57 KB). Chapter 1: Cancer and Tobacco: Its Effects on Individuals and Populations (810 KB).
