DESCRIPTION

Detailing genitourinary (GU) malignancies, this new volume from the Site-Specific Cancer series provides nurses with the information they need on cancers of the bladder, kidney, penis, and testicle. Chapters detail risk factors of GU cancers; the anatomy and physiology of the GU system; pathophysiology; and prevention, screening, and early detection of GU malignancies. This new book also details treatments of GU malignancies, and oncology nurses will learn how evidence-based practice impacts urologic 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.
