Prognostic Factors in Cancer, Third Edition examines the prognostic factors associated with each cancer site and provides insight into potential treatments and therapies.

The text is an extension of the International Union Against Cancer's (UICC) seminal work, the TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, and integrates the current focus on prognostics in cancer.

This Third Edition reflects the advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment planning made in recent years.

The first part of the book offers a complete update on the science of cancer prognosis while the second part contains site-specific chapters that provide evidence-based guidelines for treatment.

Each clinical chapter summarizes the significance of the great variety of tumour-related, patient-related, and environment-related factors that play a role in the prognosis of cancer, all backed with a grid for quick reference.
