Preface

Cancer is a word that describes a large number of related diseases. It will affect about one in three of the Western population. The disease requires expertise from many disciplines if it is to be cured or adequately palliated. Much has been written about cancer. This is daunting for the student, trainee, or other professional involved with cancer patients.

This book is designed as a primer for those who are involved with cancer patients or the study of cancer. It is intended to supply sufficient background knowledge to allow the reader to seek more detailed information from the numerous textbooks and web resources in oncology. As such, it is deliberately not all-inclusive. It does cover the principles of oncology and the common cancers as well as the complex clinical pictures that cancer can produce.

We are very grateful to the long list of contributors who took time to give insight into their own specialist areas. Special thanks should to go to Roy Spence - who, in football terms, 'came into the team from the bench and scored the winning goal!'.

I hope you enjoy this Handbook and it inspires you to learn more about this most fascinating disease.
