Harrison’s Manual of Oncology is a carry-anywhere guide to the care of patients with cancer. Enhanced by the latest published results, this valuable clinical companion features numerous tables and succinct, outline-style text that puts important information at your fingertips. You will find content that goes beyond the treatment of primary or metastatic disease to encompass the treatment of all therapeutic complications.
The opening sections of Harrison’s Manual of Oncology are devoted to the classes of agents used to treat cancer and reviews their pharmacology and mechanisms of action. This section is followed by a detailed discussion of the diagnosis, staging, and treatment of all major types of cancer. There is a strong focus on symptom management and complications of treatment, including pain, nausea and vomiting, anemia, febrile neutropenia, metabolicemergencies, thrombosis, psychological issues, and end-of-life care.
A CONCISE YET THOROUGH OVERVIEW OF THE MEDICATIONS AND APPROACHES USED IN CANCER CARE–BACKED BY THE AUTHORITY OF HARRISON’S
This book is detailed and well written. It is excellent as a reference. I especially liked the first sections, presenting common therapeutic approaches, before the chapters on different tumors. Here’s what is odd: there is no section on liver cancer. HCC is not rare. “Liver” and “hepatic” do not appear in the Contents listing, nor in the index. This despite the fact that one of the listed authors is the Director of liver cancer research at Mass General Hospital. I assume there is a chapter sitting even now in the Editor’s computer, and that the exclusion was simply an error.
It’s a wonderful book. I really liked it.
