Biology of Female Cancers explores what can be learned about female cancers by summarizing what is known about the mechanisms of growth regulation and genetic features associated with common forms of female cancers, including malignancies of the breast, ovary, uterus, cervix, vulva, and gestational trophoblastic disease. The book describes the etiology, incidence, pathology, staging, and treatment of each type of cancer. The risk of developing particular tumor types and how their growth may be influenced by hormones, growth factors, and cytokines is also discussed. For oncologists, gynecologists and obstetricians, cell biologists, and everyone interested in learning more about female cancers, the Biology of Female Cancers offers a comprehensive, unique approach.
