Cancer is the second biggest killer in the world, and almost every family has had either direct or indirect experience of it. Although there are many texts written on the various individual aspects relating to cancer, there has not been a single book that covers, even superficially, the complete broad area of cancer and that is able to provide the reader with a complete overview of the various aspects associated with the disease.
The Cancer Clock meets this need and offers a comprehensive overview of cancer as a single topic and provides information on the disease as a whole. Carefully divided into three key parts, the book is an all-encompassing account of the key aspects related to the disease, offering a thorough overview of cancer from initial diagnosis through to treatment and care and the different support mechanisms available.
Written in a clear, accessible manner, the text is richly illustrated throughout in full colour and includes problems/solutions, self-assessment questions, summary sections and information boxes all designed to enhance student understanding. Taking an interdisciplinary approach by covering such a broad range of topics, this accessible text acts as a one-stop reference for any questions on the cancer topic, providing useful, need-to-know information for students and professionals alike.
