  • Forty Years of Arctic Primary Care Research on the Early Diagnosis of Cancer 

    Holtedahl, Knut Arne (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2021)
    Usually, before a patient with cancer can be treated in a hospital, a general practitioner (GP) must suspect the diagnosis and refer the patient. GPs often worry that they could have done better for some of their cancer patients. Had there been an unreasonable delay of diagnosis? In the arctic, rural/urban city of Tromsø, this question became the subject of several scientific articles. Symptoms was ...
