What are the links between aging and cancer? Understanding and managing cancer in the elderly requires an approach that goes well beyond medical expertise alone.

A translational and multidisciplinary approach is necessary in order to address the effects of aging, cancer management and the resulting organizational measures. The aim of this book is to bring together several disciplines from the basic sciences, the clinic and the social sciences.

The spirit of this book is therefore resolutely original, offering at times a theoretical source, at times a toolbox, at times a source of reflection.

This book is of course intended for geriatricians, oncologists, organ physicians, radiotherapists and surgeons, but also for researchers, pharmacists, students, specialized nurses, managers and institutions.

It is therefore intended to be accessible, practical and synthetic.
