- Simple yet practical material to help readers gain quick knowledge on oncological cancer
- Each chapter has a systematic review, including an introduction, epidemiology, etiology, screening, symptoms and signs, investigations, treatment and follow-up guidelines
- Many clinical case scenarios are presented at the end of the chapter and the reader is asked to propose the best management with answers provided at the end of the book
The authors aim to provide essential information on various clinical cases on urological cancers. The main messages are well referenced and the texts phrasing is written in a simple and user-friendly style.
The book also contains summarizing tables and high quality original pictures. Several expert panels (American Urologists Association, European Association of Urologists, Association Française des Urologues, etc) are proposing guidelines aiming at providing detailed recommendations to the Urologists facing difficult urological scenarios and no significant discordance exist between them since they are all based on the existing published studies dealing with different aspects of the urological cancers.Table of Contents
