Gynaecological cancers are categorised as 'rare' diseases, although collectively they affect over 16,000 women each year in the UK alone. There is a lack of real understanding of these conditions compared with other malignancies, possibly owing to their relative rarity when viewed as individual diseases. The 60th RCOG Study Group brought together a range of experts to examine as many biological aspects of gynaecological cancers as possible, including both surgical and non-surgical therapies. This book presents the findings of the Study Group, with contents including:• current understanding of the biology of gynaecological cancers• translation of biology to the clinic• state of the art in imaging and therapy• current clinical trials• advances in multimodal therapy• individualised treatment.
