What is included with this book?


Case Studies in Urological Cancer builds in the success of Dr Harnett's previous Case Studies in Breast Cancer, which has established itself as a key title for anyone involved in diagnosis and care of the patient with breast cancer. Featuring over 30 detailed case studies, with comprehensive explanatory text and full colour illustrations, throughout, this book provides any healthcare professional involved in urological cancer with a selection of thought-provoking, practice-changing problems in this common malignant condition. To ensure a multidisciplinary perspective, and the most comprehensive coverage possible, Dr Harnett is assisted for this volume by two co-authors, one a urological surgeon and one a urology nurse specialist, both with many years' experience of front-line patient care.
