About this book
There are an estimated 41,000 new cases of Uterine and Endometrial Cancer each year in the United States alone, resulting in roughly 7300 deaths. In Uterine Cancer: Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment, Franco Muggia, Esther Oliva and a panel of prominent medical and gynecologic oncologists survey all aspects of Uterine and Endometrial Cancer, including current screening methods, staging and prognostic factors, and available treatment options. The discussion includes the role of imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of endometrial cancer, the molecular pathology and genetics of uterine cancer and the essential epidemiology of cancer of the endometrium. Authoritative and highly practical, Uterine Cancer: Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment is the definitive text on the most common cancer of the female genital tract, and a must-have for all gynecological residents and fellows, as well as gynecological oncologists and family practice doctors who wish to provide their patients with the best possible care.
