Benefits and Complications of Combined Management of Children with Malignant Disease
- 32 Downloads
The modern management of children with malignant diesease requires the close cooperation of the radiotherapist and chemotherapist with surgeons of several disciplines. The clinicians so involved need to be aware of both the benefits and complications which may arise from the combination of the different treatment modalities. Tumours are rare in children; so it is essential that the expertise gathered together for the management of the patients should be in reasonably large oncology centres and also that there is cooperation at both national and international levels to maximise the benefits of treatment.
