About this Book

Clinical Dilemmas in Liver Cancer follows the successful format of the other books in the Clinical Dilemmas series, with each chapter focused on a specific dilemma, or issue facing doctors in their day-to-day job, and providing them with practical clinical information and help to better assessment and treat their patients - in this case patients suffering from liver cancer, the third commonest cancer in terms of mortality worldwide.

Chapters feature up-to-date information on the basic mechanisms, epidemiological risk factors, screening and surveillance strategies, diagnosis and treatment. It is an extremely practical and clinically-orientated book, and as most patients around the world present with advanced disease, a main focus is on the most recent advances allowing early diagnosis and use of locoregional and systemic therapy, surgery, transplantation and combination therapies. Each chapter is authored by an international expert in the relevant area.
