|The European School of Oncology presents weekly e-grandrounds which offer participants the opportunity to discuss a range of cutting-edge issues, from controversial areas and the latest scientific developments to challenging clinical cases, with leading European experts in the field. One of these is selected for publication in each issue of Cancer World.
In this issue, Nicholas Pavlidis, Professor of Medical Oncology at the University of Ioannina, Greece, reviews the challenge of diagnosing and treating cancer of unknown primary (CUP). This covers a range of cancers with different histologies where the primary cancer cannot be found. He summarises new ESMO guidelines, which outline key steps in diagnosis and treatment. Daniel Helbling, from the Onkozentrum Zurich, in Switzerland, poses questions that were sent in by participants during the e-grandround live presentation. The presentation is summarised by Susan Mayor.
