No votes yet

Providing you with information on cancers of the bladder, kidney (renal), penis, and testicle, Genitourinary Cancers helps you to effectively care for your patients with these cancers and their families. Prostate cancer, which is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy in men living in the United States, is discussed in another book within the site-specific cancer series, Prostate Cancer.

Chapters in this volume detail

  • Risk factors of genitourinary cancers
  • The anatomy and physiology of the genitourinary system (including the kidneys, ureters, bladder, penis, and scrotum)
  • Pathophysiology
  • Prevention, screening, and early detection
  • Treatment of genitourinary malignancies
  • Evidence-based practice's effect on urology oncology nursing care.

Because of the organs affected, these cancers have a significant impact on the lives of patients, their spouses, and partners. As such, a chapter is devoted to sexual function and sexual rehabilitation, with details on assessment tools and treatment options for men and women.
