ESMO Handbook of Cancer in the Senior Patient Paperback
Edited by Dirk Schrijvers, Matti Aapro, Branko Zakotnik, Riccardo A. Audisio, Hendrik Van Halteren, Arti Hurria
Part of the European Society for Medical Oncology Handbooks series
Cancer is a disease related to ageing, and the proportion of senior patients increases worldwide.
While the proportion of persons beyond age 70 is still small in developing countries, their numerous population means that there are more "elderlies" in India than in Europe.
This book reflects the state of the art in the management of senior adults with cancer.
This handbook leaves ample space for chapters that help in the delicate decision-making process, which should lead to the best therapy, adapted not only to the disease but also to the person who suffers from it.
