This book, designed to be used for an undergraduate course on cancer biology, is aimed at upper division undergraduates with a background in freshman biology, as well as beginning graduate students. An introduction acquaints students with the biological principles of cancer, and the human dimensions of the disease by considering genuine cases of cancer. Other chapters discuss cancer pathology, metastasis, carcinogenesis, genetics, oncogenes and tumor suppressors, epidemiology, and the biological basis of cancer treatment. Also included are an appendix with descriptions of common forms of cancer and a glossary.
