Iam very pleased to present the third edition of The 5-Minute Urology Consult. The first edition was released almost 15 years ago, with the second edition published in 2010.
The continuing advances in urology lead to this much-needed 2015 update. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with useful information in a quick reference format to help with the everyday care of patients with urologic problems. This third edition has undergone extensive editing and updating to reflect the most current data possible at the time of publication. Urologic diseases and conditions are common problems seen by all health care providers. Almost one-third of all congenital disorders involve the genitourinary system, and the urinary tract accounts for almost 25% of all solid tumors in adults. While this book is written primarily for urologists, any health care practitioner who deals with urologic complaints and conditions should find the book a useful resource.
Students of urology, residents and fellows preparing for oral and written in-service examination, and practicing urologists preparing for certification examinations will find the book a useful study aid. While primarily written for practitioners in the United States, the table of contents has been reviewed by our international editorial board, which represent more than three dozen countries, in an attempt to capture as many diseases and conditions as possible for international readers. The broad array of topics addressed in this book is based on reviews of published literature, major textbooks, grand rounds case presentations, validated Internet resources, and actual patient consultations. Topics are meant to represent “real-world’’ clinical questions from very broad to very specific topics. Some of the topics may appear redundant, such as Section I topics “Scrotum and testicle, mass’’ and “Testis, tumor and mass, adult, general considerations.’’
