Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The incidence of urological malignancies has increased significantly over the last three decades. Kidney and bladder cancers and especially prostate cancer account for a significant percentage of all new cases in oncology. Even if in most cases the initial treatment is curable, a number of patients have a poor course of the disease with local or distant relapses and require further treatment, which significantly reduces their quality of life.
Over the past two decades, great efforts have been made to improve diagnosis and treatment outcomes. Molecular biomarkers have been investigated and introduced into clinical practice, and new pathological and clinical classifications have been proposed to account for the tumor behavior and risk of disease recurrence. At the same time, new surgical and pharmacological approaches have been developed to improve treatment outcomes.
Nevertheless, many topics remain a matter of debate regarding accurate diagnosis, targeted therapy, and multidisciplinary management.
This Special Issue of Uro will cover all aspects of urological cancers, including original research into advanced imaging, molecular characterization, current and experimental treatment options, and quality of life. Research articles, expert opinions, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses are also welcome.
