This book represents the most up-to-date, comprehensive textbook in urologic oncology to be published in recent years. Many of the world’s leading experts have contributed to the present work and in doing so have passed on their wisdom in terms of the key therapeutic considerations and clinical pearls pivotal in the management of these malignancies. This book not only addresses many of the essential diagnostic and therapeutic considerations in the management of prostate, bladder, upper tract, urethral, kidney, testis, penile, and adrenal cancers but also highlights many of the important technological advances in urological oncology including the rapid adoption of robotic assisted laparoscopic surgery in the care of many urologic malignancies.
