Description

Genitourinary cancers are comprised of physiologically complex and challenging-to-treat tumor types. In recent years, clinical and basic science research has resulted in many major advances in understanding the pathophysiology and management strategies of these diseases. In addition to the approval by the FDA of new pharmacological agents, the newly-gleaned insights and changing treatment strategies have led to the revision of current diagnosis and treatment
guidelines. However, challenges, controversies and educational gaps remain. This succinct yet comprehensive volume provides oncologists and other healthcare professionals with essential, evidence-based guidance on all the major elements related to the diagnosis and treatment of the major types of
genitourinary cancers. Edited by a world renowned oncologist, this volume outlines the general pathophysiology as well as pharmacological and other treatment approaches.
