Renal Cancer available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:

Renal cancer has recently become a very exciting area of oncology. Whilst it has been known for some time that individual patient outcomes vary greatly, therapeutic interventions for renal cancer have enjoyed only limited success until recently. In the past decade, there have been significant advances in surgical oncology which have only been matched by advances in new therapeutics within the last three years. Renal cancer is therefore a rapidly changing field, and investigators have had to learn novel ways of assessing disease, monitoring response to treatment and helping patients to cope with the side effects of these therapies.
Part of the Oxford Oncology Library, this pocketbook summarises the latest evidence-based and practical information on the treatment of renal cancer. With contributions from leading oncologists, the book covers the range of therapies currently available to clinicians, including surgery, interventional radiology, and systemic treatments. This book will serve as an invaluable reference for all health care professionals involved in the management of patients with renal cancer.
