About this book


The treatment of gynecologic cancers at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center has a long history of multidisciplinary cooperation. Gynecologic Cancer, the fifth volume in the M. D. Anderson Cancer Care Series, details M. D. Anderson’s approach to the care of women with gynecologic cancers. Written for physicians, the book emphasizes the day-to-day aspects of practice, minimizing extensive literature review and approaches not yet incorporated into routine practice.

In 17 comprehensive yet concise chapters, M. D. Anderson faculty describe their approaches to the treatment of endometrial, ovarian, and cervical cancers, as well as preinvasive gynecologic diseases, vaginal and vulvar cancers, uterine sarcomas, and rare ovarian malignancies. In addition to the discussions of individual disease sites, the book contains chapters on prevention, pathology, imaging, fertility-sparing options, quality of life issues, including sexual functioning, and palliative care. Each chapter includes a list of suggested readings and key practice points that highlight the most important principles presented.

This thorough, practical volume, which includes more than 60 photographs and line drawings, is an essential clinical guide for oncologists, surgeons, and all physicians involved in the care of patients with gynecologic cancers.
