ABSTRACT

This book for the practicing urologist, oncologist, and student describes the principles of diagnosis and management of urologic cancer. It bridges the gap between laboratory and clinical research and clinical application. It is broad based and presents all aspects of urologic oncology, from epidemiology through diagnosis and multimodal treatment.

This second edition has 39 chapters with 53 expert contributors. The first part of the book covers the general topics of statistics, epidemiology, pathogenesis, the design of clinical trials, and the principles of immunobiology, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy as they apply to urologic cancer. The chapters dealing with immunology and immunotherapy and tumor markers are especially timely and valuable. The discussion of radiologic diagnosis and intervention is current and well illustrated, with an excellent review of the various percutaneous procedures and the role of computed tomography and nuclear magnetic resonance.

The remaining portion of the book is organized around cancer
