'... a truly superb, high quality textbook... Here is a book that could be read by a medical student or a consultant otolaryngologist and both would be enlightened in doing so.

Principles and Practice of Head and Neck Oncology takes a multidisciplinary approach which reviews all aspects of the management of head and neck cancer from initial diagnostic procedures, through staging, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy to aftercare and rehabilitation. It includes conditions affecting both adults and children, and is one that affects a variety of organs and structures. The first section introduces the reader to the multidisciplinary nature of managing this very diverse group of diseases, and the means by which they are treated. Topics covered include the molecular biology of these tumours, applications of chemotherapy and broader issues of nursing care such as nutrition and dental hygiene. Sections 2 and 3 review each of the major types of cancer: Section 2 is dedicated to tumours of the upper airways and digestive tract, including the mouth, nasopharynx and larynx, while Section 3 covers the rest of the head and neck and organs therein, including the skull base tumours, thyroid and salivary glands. There has been a change in approach and a move towards a more holistic approach taking greater acount of quality-of-life issues. There is increased use of conservation laser and other surgical techniques as well as chemo-radiotherapeutic regimes. The combined experience of the editors and contributors gives a broad and balanced view of current approaches.
