Cancer and aging are integrally related. Cancer incidence and mortality increase with age, with most cancer diagnoses and deaths occurring in patients aged 65 and older. The aging of the Baby Boomer population, along with an overall increase in life expectancy, points to a doubling of the U.S. population over age 65 by the year 2030. This demographic shift, combined with the known association of cancer and aging, is expected to bring about a rapid growth in the older cancer-patient population. It is clear that geriatric principles must become part of oncology care

This book is designed to guide oncologists with the integration of proven geriatric principles. Recommendations, risks, and benefits of cancer screening, assessment, and treatment of older adults with cancer are discussed in detail. Chapters detail the physiologic, psychological, and social aspects of aging and
discuss ways to incorporate this information into cancer therapy decisions with older adults. Palliative care considerations in the challenging context of aging are also discussed, along with the issues that caregivers face when dealing with a geriatric cancer patient. An understanding of the unique interaction between cancer and aging will ultimately enhance cancer care for the growing population of older adults.
