Abstract

Treatment of advanced cancer is no longer limited to palliative measures. Chemotherapy now results in long term, disease free survival of some patients with such malignant diseases as leukemia, lymphoma, and lesions of the colon, endometrium, testis or breast. Coinciding with the emergence of chemotherapy has been the evolution of a new subspecialty in internal medicine, medical oncology. As an advocate of the cancer patient, the medical oncologist integrates many skills in attempting to control, and ultimately to cure, neoplastic diseases. He is involved with the total management of the cancer patient and provides valuable services to the community physician in the form of guidance and consultation.
