Cancer of the urinary bladder (UBC) is a common tumour, and most primary care physicians can expect to see two or three new cases each year. Since many patients will have a good prognosis, the number of patients with bladder cancer in the population of every practice will be much larger.

This book clearly and succinctly provides the facts that those treating and caring for patients with UBC will need to know. It is a concise guide to clinical practice for family physicians, specialist nurses, and junior doctors and will be of interest to patients keen to understand more about their condition.

  • Offers a clear explanation of therapeutic options to help doctor and patient make informed treatment choices
  • Includes the evidence base for diagnosis and management of UBC
  • New expanded coverage on chemotherapy and radiotherapy
  • Offers greater detail on oncology and palliation
  • Concluding section on Future Trends reviews prevention, earlier diagnosis, improvements to existing treatments and emerging therapies
