The purpose of this text is to help develop a better understanding of the nature of cancer, to expand prevention strategies, and to improve diagnostic and prognostic skills centred around multiple primary cancers. Clinical studies focusing on the aetiology of multiple primary cancers, statistical data presented in tables, and discussions on various organ sites and the possible occurrence of multiple primary cancers are addressed throughout the text. The first part reviews various methodological and statistical considerations in the study, management and prevention of primary, secondary and multiple primary cancers. An entire chapter contains tables of incidence rates of various multiple primary cancers that prove helpful in subsequent chapters. Part Two discusses predisposing genetic conditions and various forms of environmental factors that are associated with multiple primary cancers. Finally, the last section review selected types of cancers and focuses on possible clinical implications for occurrences of specific multiple primary cancers.
