About this book

This is a novel text that highlights the controversial areas in the management of gynecological cancers. None of the topics in this book have definitive answers; they represent the everyday decision-making facing gynecologists, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and other health professionals treating women with these conditions. This book is not to be used as a traditional textbook; it is a text that specialists and trainees will use to help them weigh up the arguments that exist in a variety of areas in the treatment of gynecological cancers. Each chapter will have two or more authors, selected either for their opposing views or for their ability to provide an opposite view or opinion to the other. The content will be evidence-based, illustrating contrasting evidence and scientific opinion in the literature. Each chapter will close on a summary indicating the direction of research needed to address the issues being discussed.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book tackles current issues in the field of gynecological cancer. … The book is geared towards specialists in the field, although residents may find it useful. … The material is current and the data well done. This would be a good book for motivated trainees to bring to the table for discussions with attendings. Overall, the authors do a good job.” (Anthony Shanks, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2014)
