Urologic Oncology

Urologic OncologyUrologic cancer has become a major public health problem in the United States: an estimated 42% of all new cancers in men and 16% of cancer deaths in men are a result of urologic cancers. Although less common in women, bladder and kidney cancer still rank among significant causes of morbidity and mortality. The impact of urologic cancers on the population and the far-reaching advances in urologic oncology have provided the impetus for this new textbook, which covers all aspects of urologic oncology in a concise yet focused fashion.
Major strides have been accomplished in the field of urologic oncology, particularly in the area of prostate cancer, where an estimated 220,900 new cases were expected in 2003 and a significant but decreasing number of deaths totaling 31,800.
