Textbook of Penile Cancer reports accurately on recent developments in the management of penile cancer, whilst also covering the fundamentals of the disease, to provide a comprehensive, stand-alone and up-to-date volume on the subject.

The surgical management of penile cancer is shifting towards increasingly refined methods, as it is believed that a proportion of patients undergo overtreatment for the disease. Where traditionally the management of penile cancer has involved partial or total penectomy combined with radical inguinal lymphadenectomy, over the last few years the treatment involves conservative penile reconstructive surgery such that sexual function and phallic length is preserved. Furthermore, the increasing utilization of sentinel lymph node biopsy rather than radical inguinal lymphadenectomy prevents the unnecessary removal of lymph nodes in patients where lymph node metastases has not occurred. There is also likely to be a change in the role of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for advanced disease.

Textbook of Penile Cancer covers the epidemiology, molecular biology, radiological imaging, as well as the latest surgical advances in the treatment of this disease. This book is a valuable reference tool for Urological Surgeons, Genitourinary Physicians, Trainee Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons, Oncologists, Dermatologists and Sexual Health Physicians.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The authors describe the epidemiology before giving an exhaustive outline of the molecular concepts and pathogenesis of penile cancer. ... This textbook represents an excellent update on penile cancer, which will be of interest to urologists and oncologists." (European Urology Today, Vol. 25 (5), October-November, 2013)
