Details

Latin America represents about 10% of the global population distributed in 33 countries. There is huge social and economic heterogeneity even within and beyond the same country, particularly Brazil being the largest country, where Portuguese is the official language rather than Spanish. Furthermore, several ranking systems have considered Brazil a unique country within the 10 world highest economies. In view of the diversity in Latin America with different possibilities and realities, we have found it essential to develop a textbook with focus on the Management of Cancer in Latin America, describing our daily reality, problems to overcome and our huge possibilities. In this volume, we discuss various cancers from nasopharyngeal to renal cancer. We hope that this book will serve as a valuable resource of information for health care professionals, practitioners and policy makers.
