Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention

David Schottenfeld and Joseph F. Fraumeni

Abstract

The third edition of this book reviews the global burden of cancer, causes of cancer, and current priorities and future directions in cancer epidemiology and prevention research. The book maintains the structure of previous editions with seventy-two chapters organized into five major sections: Basic Concepts; The Magnitude of Cancer; The Causes of Cancer; Cancer by Tissue of Origin, and Cancer Prevention and Control. The introductory chapters under Basic Concepts highlight the advances in genomic and molecular biology that have applications in morphologic classification of malignant tumors, an ... More

Keywords: cancer epidemiology, cancer prevention, cancer control, global cancer incidence, global cancer mortality, molecular biology of cancer
