Urologic cancers comprise cancers of the kidney, bladder, prostate, testis, and penis. While kidney cancer and bladder cancer affect both men and women, cancers of the prostate, testis and penis are specific to men.

Urologic cancers are being increasingly diagnosed incidentally, at least in part due to increased use of imaging modalities for various reasons. While novel treatment strategies and management plans introduced in the past two decades have substantially increased patient survival and improved quality of life for localized disease, this has not been the case with metastatic disease highlighting the need for further active research. This book brings together an international team of clinicians and basic scientists to discuss the recent advances in the pathology and management of urologic cancers. The 15 chapters of this book cover a broad array of topics encompassing pathology, management, and potential therapeutic targets of urologic cancers. The first two chapters provide an account of two unique entities, invasive urothelial carcinoma, and papillary urothelial neoplasms. The histologic subtypes, divergent differentiation, and clinical characteristics, and prognostic features are discussed. CONTINUE READING…..
