Citation
Description This is the first comprehensive book devoted exclusively to cancer in adolescents and young adults in the Czech Republic. Adolescents and young adults account for about 2% of all patients with a new diagnosis of invasive cancer. The emphasis is on how the cancer in the age group differs in epidemiology, biology, clinical management and outcome. Several challenges must be overcome to improve the coordination and quality of care for this age group.
