Gynaecological Tumours: Essentials for Clinicians provides an easily accessible and up-to-date overview of the latest developments and studies within gynaecological oncology.

Written by European experts in gynaecological oncology, the content ranges from pathology, early diagnosis and prevention to the current therapeutic options for gynaecological tumours, including treatment options for recurrent disease and rare tumours.

The book pairs concise text with informative illustrations and is aimed at gynaecological oncologists in-training; however, it is also informative and useful for medical oncologists and radio-oncologists who have a focus on gynaecological oncology.

Chapter authors are specialists from a range of disciplines involved in the diagnostics and management of gynaecological tumours such as gynaecological oncology, radio-oncology, pathology and medical oncology.

The title is the fifth in the popular Essentials for Clinicians series, created to explain complicated concepts in the management of tumours in a concise, clear and accessible way, giving the reader a strong theoretical foundation that can then be built upon.
