The single word, cancer, embraces a wide range of different diseases - some curable, many not. Despite some significant advances in treatment since the turn of the century, it is frequently the nature of the disease itself that determines the ultimate outcome for the patient rather than the efforts of the attending doctor. This difficulty in understanding the complexity of the disease and its treatments may provide problems for both lawyers and plaintiffs. Professor Hilmar warenius bring his experience to bear on explaining the nature and treatment of cancer, from the viewpoint of both a basic scientist actively engaged in cancer research and consultant clinical oncologist who has treated a wide range of different cancers with both radiotheraphy and chemotheraphy. Because this book endeavours to explain the basic concepts underlying cancer diagnosis and treatment, it should prove valuable, not only to the legal profession, but to many of the general public who wish to gain a better understanding of a disease which continues to cause a serious threat to human life and health.
