About this book


This book provides readers with current information on the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of carcinomas of the kidney and testis, as well as several less common tumors of the genitourinary tract. Recent contributions in epidemiology and molecular genetics are discussed with a view to their importance for clinical practice. Novel approaches to the treatment of several important tumors are presented, with emphasis on multidisciplinary patient management. The numerous illustrations will assist the reader in obtaining a better understanding of the presented data.
