Clinical Endocrine Oncology
Second Edition
edited by Ian D. Hay

Clinical Endocrine Oncology provides specific and detailed guidance on the basic, clinical, investigative and therapeutic processes required for the thorough evaluation of a patient with a tumor in an endocrine organ.

The eighty-four chapters are arranged in seven parts:

  • Endocrine Oncology and Therapeutic Options
  • Thyroid and Parathyroid Tumors
  • Pituitary and Hypothalamic Lesions
  • Adrenal and Gonadal Tumors
  • Neuroendocrine Tumors and the Clinical Syndromes
  • Medical Syndromes and Endocrine Neoplasia
  • Endocrine-responsive Tumors and Female Reproductive Hormone Therapy

Clinical Endocrine Oncology will be an invaluable resource for all those working in the field, including endocrinologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation therapists, interventional radiologists, specialist nurses, and clinical scientists.
