The contributions of this title deal with current state-of-the-art treatment strategies, important clinical advances, novel approaches and future advances that promise further improvements in outcome and are considered the 'hot' or 'burning' issues of the day. The topics covered in this book should mainly be considered as adjuncts to common textbooks on head and neck cancer. The contributions should help pathologists in their routine diagnosis and should stimulate further thyroid research. This handbook will aim to be a useful guide to the practice of head and neck surgery in a form that is concise, practical and easily accessible for use in the ward or for revision purposes as well as being a 'must have' for medical students, physicians, surgeons and general practitioners seeking to further develop their knowledge of head and neck cancer.
