This updated fifth edition provides comprehensive coverage of the biology of gynecologic cancer, the therapeutic modalities available, and the diagnosis and treatment of site-specific malignancies. Because of the importance of multimodality treatment, the site-specific chapters are co-authored by a surgical oncologist, a medical oncologist, a radiation oncologist, and a pathologist. State-of-the-art information on molecular biology, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, and gene-directed therapies is included throughout the book. This edition has 30 per cent new contributing authors and new material. Several chapters have been consolidated and streamlined to create a more concise, user-friendly book. Information about psychological aspects, surgical rehabilitation, and pregnancy-related issues has been incorporated into many of the disease site chapters. There is a companion website that will offer the fully searchable text.
