Cancer screening is a complex discipline that requires clinicians to apply principles of specificity, sensitivity, predictive value, and cost-effectiveness. Aziz and Wu developed this concise manual of cancer screening for primary care physicians, internists, and subspecialists who are regularly involved in cancer screening. As such, it is quite effective, but the book deserves contrast with the comprehensive Guide to Clinical Preventive Services published by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).
