The incidence of cancer in senior patients has been increasing worldwide. This book reflects the state of the art in the management of senior adults with cancer. The contributors discuss epidemiology, evaluation, surgical and radiotherapy treatment, hormonal and cytotoxic treatment, and specific cancers such as lung, breast, colorectal, prostate, bladder, gynecological, and renal cell cancer. The book also examines psychological, social, and ethical aspects, as well as the role of the multidisciplinary team. Designed to help clinicians with the delicate decision-making process, it should lead to the best therapy adapted not only to the disease but also the patient.
