This new ABC title provides a solid basis of understanding of the common modalities of cancer care, indications, benefits and common toxicities. It will enable general practitioners, family physicians, and other primary care health professionals to better inform their patients, manage and recognize the common complications of the disease and its treatment, and also to more fully understand the rationale and implications of treatments initiated in secondary and tertiary care. The ABC of Cancer Care is an ideal companion to ABC of Breast Diseases, ABC of Prostate Cancer, ABC of Colorectal Cancer, ABC of Lung Cancer and ABC of Skin Cancer.
