Introduction The prevailing model of medical care for patients with cancer emphasizes the curative efforts of medical technology toward the eradication of the disease. Yet the suffering of the patient as a result of both the disease and our efforts to treat it is often overlooked. If we are to improve the survival of patients with cancer, it will be through intensive research into the molecular under pinnings of the disease and clinical trials of new therapies. However, it is essen tial to recognize and address the suffering of cancer patients as they are being treated. It is the purpose of this book to illuminate and advance the preven tion and treatment of suffering as part of the continuum of care for patients with cancer. Fundamental concepts Since the time of Hippocrates in the fifth century B.c., there have been two overall goals for the physician: • Cure of disease • Relief of suffering From our vantage point in the late twentieth century looking back at previ ous centuries, it is easy to observe that, aside from surgery, much of the medical care administered to patients with cancer was aimed at relieving the suffering associated with illness. It wasn't until the concept of disease (as opposed to illness) was elucidated and the scientific method was applied to understand ing and eradicating cancer that significant strides were made to improve the physician's ability to cure cancer.

Oral Cancer: Diagnosis, Management, and Rehabilitation provides readers with a systematic review of the diagnostic and treatment principles that maximize the outcomes of patients who have been diagnosed with oral cancer. Written by authorities in the fields of head and neck surgical oncology, radiation oncology, reconstructive surgery, dentistry, and oral and maxillofacial surgery, this textbook provides clinicians with a unified management philosophy that is firmly based upon the best available evidence in the peer-reviewed literature. In-depth clinical reviews of preferred treatment approaches and reconstructive techniques for each oral mucosal site facilitate the development of effective treatment strategies that are tailored to the location and extent of the lesion. The book describes the interrelationship between the site of oral cancer involvement and its impact on outcomes, such as local-regional cancer control and quality of life following treatment. Features: Insightful reviews of controversial clinical issues, such as the management of early mandibular invasion and the clinically negative neck Step-by-step descriptions of surgical techniques which improve access to particular regions of the oral cavity, permit the resection of tumors with minimal morbidity, and result in optimal reconstructive outcomes Exhaustive coverage of topics that have heretofore received limited attention in textbooks devoted to oral cancer, including the evaluation and management of oral premalignant lesions, osseointegrated implantation and dental implant imaging, and orofacial pain Educational photographs and illustrations highlighting important teaching points and critical nuances in surgical technique Ideal for reading cover-to-cover, this book is both an indispensable reference for experienced clinicians and an essential educational tool for residents and other members of the multidisciplinary oral cancer team.
