Edited and written by medical oncologists and surgeons, this new reference covers all aspects of renal cell cancer from pathology and molecular genetics onto diagnosis, screening and imaging.
The book includes all the latest on management and treatment from medical and immunotherapy through to surgical procedures and covers future therapeutics and supportive care.
The bulk of the chapters deal with practical management of the continuum of kidney cancer ranging from the small renal mass to the metastatic patient. Different treatment approaches are discussed within the context of each of these clinical scenarios, and surgical and therapeutic advances are highlighted. In addition, special populations such as patients requiring palliative care, those with brain or bone metastasis and those with inherited renal cell carcinoma are discussed.
