Textbook of Penile Cancer


 

Textbook of Penile Cancer reports accurately on recent developments in the management of penile cancer, whilst also covering the fundamentals of the disease, to provide a comprehensive, stand-alone and up-to-date volume on the subject.
The surgical management of penile cancer is shifting towards increasingly refined methods, as it is believed that a proportion of patients undergo overtreatment for the disease. Where traditionally the management of penile cancer has involved partial or total penectomy combined with radical inguinal lymphadenectomy, over the last few years the treatment   involves conservative penile reconstructive surgery  such that sexual function and phallic length is preserved. Furthermore, the increasing utilization of sentinel lymph node biopsy rather than  radical inguinal lymphadenectomy prevents the unnecessary removal of lymph nodes in patients where  lymph node  metastases has not occurred. There is also likely to be a change in the role of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for  advanced disease.
Textbook of Penile Cancer covers the epidemiology, molecular biology, radiological imaging, as well as the  latest surgical advances  in the treatment of this disease. This book is a valuable reference tool for Urological Surgeons, Genitourinary Physicians, Trainee Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons, Oncologists, Dermatologists and Sexual Health Physicians.


Asif Muneer BSc(Hons), MB, ChB, FRCS(Ed), FRCS(Eng), MD, FRCS(Urol)
Asif Muneer is a consultant urological surgeon with a specialist interest in andrology and men's Health. After completing a research degree at the Wolfson Institute, University College London, he went on to complete his higher surgical training in Oxford and was awarded the Intercollegiate Gold Medal. After completing a further fellowship he was appointed as a consultant based at University College Hospital as well as Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London. He is now part of one of the largest penile cancer teams in the UK.  Asif has been actively involved in the diagnosis and management of penile cancer for a number of years. His other areas of interest are priapism, erectile dysfunction, penile reconstructive surgery, and male infertility. Outside of work he is a keen cricketer and footballer. Asif is married to Iaisha and has two children.
 
Manit Arya MD, FRCS(Urol)
Manit Arya has an interest in minimally invasive uro-oncology and is based at University College Hospital, London, UK. He has published extensively throughout the urology literature, particularly in the field of uro-oncology, as well as editing eight books. He has completed a research degree investigating the theory of metastatic disease. He completed his higher surgical training in London, and has since organised a number of national educational courses for both medical students and trainees. Manit is married to Nitika and has two children.
 
Simon Horenblas MD, PhD., FEBU
Simon Horenblas trained as a urological surgeon in The Netherlands and was appointed at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in 1988. He became chief of the department of urology in 1993 and professor of urologic oncology in 2000.
His clinical work focussed solely in the field of uro-oncology. His research has centred around tissue preservation and early detection of metastases. He has been at the forefront of developing sentinel lymph node biopsy in urologic cancers, bladder preservation and prostate sparing cystectomy. He has authored more than 150 peer reviewed papers and has written a number of chapters in oncology textbooks. He is a keen ice skater, snowboarder, and alpinist. Simon is married to Irene and has a daughter and a son.Asif Muneer is a consultant urological surgeon with a specialist interest in andrology and men's Health.
