This second book in the Jack Spenser, M.D., series describes the years of training it takes to become a physician / pathologist. The story focuses on the complex relationship between an apprentice and master whose credo is “You can’t not know.” Jack’s struggle to meet such a high standard results in a compelling story with highs, lows, success, failure and ultimately wisdom.

Female Genital Tumours is the fourth volume in the 5th edition of the WHO series on the classification of human tumours. This 5th edition, guided by the WHO Classification of Tumours Editorial Board, will establish a single coherent cancer classification presented across a collection of individual volumes organized on the basis of anatomical site (digestive system, breast, soft tissue and bone, etc.) and structured in a systematic manner, with each tumour type listed within a taxonomic classification: site, category, family (class), type and subtype. In each volume, the entities are now listed from benign to malignant and are described under an updated set of headings, including histopathology, diagnostic molecular pathology, staging and easy to read essential and desirable diagnostic criteria.
