Recenzii

“The book describes oncology at a basic level, discussing clinical aspects of cancer, how and why people develop cancer, how the body reacts to cancer, and how cancer presents in adult patients. … This is a great book to get a broad overview of the field of adult oncology. It is a good book for a student or someone new to the field of oncology.” (Melissa Mason, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2016)
