About this book


The treatment of female genital cancers has undergone rapid change in recent years. This book provides a comprehensive description of the current treatment modalities, and while special attention is devoted to the role of radiotherapy, established alternative radical surgical procedures and the newer chemotherapeutic regimens are also considered in some detail. All authors are internationally known experts from Europe, the United States, and Japan, and all have extensive experience in the subjects that they discuss.
