The aim of the updated book is to include new developments and update the literature in relation to sentinel node biopsy, new radiology techniques and long term epidemiological data. This book is useful for urologists, dermatologists, sexual health physicians as well as those with an interest in virology and genomics related to squamous cell cancers.
The surgical techniques are all well illustrated with a step by step guide in order to allow those individuals in centres which are not expert centres to undertake the management of this devastating tumour.
