While the medical literature abounds with information on gynecological cancer, this book winnows that volume of data into one manageable reference. In a practical and easy-to-use layout, the Handbook of Gynecologic Oncology, Second Edition provides a comprehensive and concise guide to the diagnosis and management of gynecologic cancer, including breast and colon cancers. Edited and written by the faculty of the gynecologic oncology programs of MD Anderson Cancer Center and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, this second edition reviews and updates various chapters. It includes a discussion of the new developments in management and a new chapter on germ cell and sex cord-stromal tumors. The text is aimed at fellows and residents in gynecologic oncology, radiation oncology and medical oncology as well as residents in obstetrics and gynecologic surgery and medicine. It will also be a handy guide for medical students and practicing physicians.
