This comprehensive text is the first to define and address the broad spectrum of acute and chronic internal medicine disorders that occur in cancer patients and cancer survivors as side-effects of the disease itself, or from treatment regimens.

Recent therapeutic advances in cancer treatment indicate that rather than a killer, cancer is becoming a chronic disease. The authors cover non-oncologic aspects of internal medicine such as anorexia, obesity, bone loss, diabetes, depression, pain, fatigue, congestive heart failure, skin disorders, and pneumonia. This book is conceived as a companion to standard internal medicine and oncology texts a comprehensive reference resource for internists caring for cancer patients and oncologists in practice. The text is extensively indexed for easy access and retrieval of information.
