The text covers epidemiology and natural history of bladder cancer as well as latest findings regarding the genetics and molecular biology of the disease. Diagnostic and staging evaluation of both non-muscle invasive and invasive bladder cancer is discussed. The text incorporates chapters summarizing new findings regarding markers for the diagnosis of bladder cancer and new diagnostic techniques to enhance traditional methods such as cystoscopy. Risk stratified treatment of non muscle invasive bladder cancer including various approaches to intravesical therapy are reviewed.

The application of chemotherapy for muscle invasive and advanced disease is discussed and the evidence based application of multimodality therapy highlighted. Finally, gaps in current knowledge and areas for future research are highlighted. Ongoing important clinical trials which could imminently yield significant new knowledge is discussed.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The target audience is researchers, clinicians, trainees, allied health professionals, and medical students. Given the emphasis and specificity of the chapters on early stage bladder cancer, this book seems most geared to urologists and urology trainees. … This is a very easy to use, clearly and expertly written, case- and clinical scenario-based reference that will be helpful to all who treat and study bladder cancer.” (Jean Hoffman-Censits, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2015)
