The book emphasizes the clinical aspects of the diagnosis and management of the endocrine problems in cancer. The text starts by studying the biological basis of cancer, its secreted products, and its relationship to the genetics of the cell and the individual. Cell metabolism and the individual clinical endocrine syndromes that occur are then discussed in the chapters that follow. Several chapters describe the physiological basis and the diagnostic approach to cancer. Finally, the clinical management of cancer is outlined in detail.
Oncologists, endocrinologists, physicians, researchers, and medical students will find this text useful.
