Treatment Options in Urological Cancer provides the trainee and practising urologist with an up–to–date consensus of the current management of urological cancer. It does so in a unique way by setting out the opposing arguments in a controversial area of treatment and then providing an expert overview to tease out the key messages. Each type of cancer (bladder, kidney, testis, prostate and penis) is covered in a dedicated section covering the issues of surgery, drugs, hormone treatment, pathology and molecular biology.
