The atlas covers basic concepts of etiology, epidemiology, and staging. Clinical concepts of diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment, complications, and prognosis are also featured. With the understanding of the molecular biology of oncogenesis and tumor progression becoming more clear-cut, development in the research of how to treat tumors has also progressed. This atlas attempts to bring the practitioner up to speed with this information and discusses the most current treatments of these tumors.
