Overview

Bladder cancer is an international public health problem affecting millions of people in both developed and underdeveloped nations. This major urologic malignancy was one of the first cancers to be linked to occupational and environmental exposure to carcinogens. Bladder cancer is the 5th most common cancer of American men and the 8th most common cancer of American women. Sixty thousand new cases of the disease are diagnosed each year in the US alone; disease prevalence is high in western nations due to the predominance of the chronic relapsing form of cancer that occurs in these countries (USA prevalence estimated to be 600,000; NCI-SEER database). This single fact makes bladder cancer one of the most expensive cancers to treat. Treatment and Management of Bladder Cancer, drawing on the expertise of an international community of experts in the field, provides the reader with all aspects of diagnosis and treatment pertaining to bladder cancer.

As an additional feature, the book will include a cd-rom containing the figures and legends from each chapter in a user-friendly format, in order to further aid the reader.
