Abstract The primary objective of this volume is to inform the layman more adequately about cancer, with the hope that he may develop better lines of communication with his family physician.

The initial chapters are of a general nature and deal with the pathology and genetics of cancer, public attitudes toward the disease, carcinogenic agents, and quackery. The chapter on genetics is one which will answer most of the common questions about the inheritance of cancer which are asked of the physician. Chapters 6 through 15 describe the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of malignancy of the various organ systems in which most neoplasms occur.
