Uterine cancers are the commonest malignancies of the female genital tract in the developed world, and are increasing in numbers world over because of obesity and other life-style changes. Many of these malignancies are hereditary and thus, a better understanding of the genetic and molecular biology is needed. This would lead to appropriate treatment plan for improving the quality of life and long-term survival. This book addresses, in depth, all aspects of uterine malignancies covering both ca…

Abstract
Uterine cancers are the commonest malignancies of the female genital tract in the developed world, and are increasing in numbers world over because of obesity and other life-style changes. Many of these malignancies are hereditary and thus, a better understanding of the genetic and molecular biology is needed. This would lead to appropriate treatment plan for improving the quality of life and long-term survival. This book addresses, in depth, all aspects of uterine malignancies covering both carcinomas and sarcomas. The book is divided into seven sections; the first two sections deal with epidemiology, molecular aspects, familial cancers and pathology and the later sections focus on diagnosis, imaging techniques and comprehensive management of both early stage and advanced cancers. Surgical techniques, adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy have been covered in detail. Apart from the open surgical methods, role of laparoscopy and emerging role of robotic surgery in the contemporary management of endometrial cancers have been discussed. Written by authors with expertise in the field of gynecologic oncology from premier institutes, this book provides up-to-date information on best practice management of uterine malignancies.

Abstract
This practical book provides up-to-date information on the particular features of ovarian cancer in older women and the best management approach. The full range of relevant topics is covered. Guidance is provided on geriatric assessment, screening, pathology, diagnosis, and follow-up. The various treatment options are carefully explained, covering surgical approaches, chemotherapy as a first-line strategy, the use of anti-angiogenic agents, and treatment of relapse. The cognitive problems that may arise in elderly women during and after treatment of ovarian cancer are documented, with advice on response. Guidance is also provided on the design of clinical trials, and current directions in biological research are reviewed. This book will be of value to both practitioners and researchers with an interest in ovarian cancer and the elderly.
