The purpose of this second edition (the first appeared 10 years ago) of The 5-Minute Urology Consult is to “provide the reader with useful information in a quick reference format. . . . ” In other words, this large volume is meant to be used “in the trenches”; it will be most useful to urologic practitioners and their trainees but could be a handy reference for many other clinicians, because urologic disease is so common. For example, the urinary tract accounts for almost 25% of all solid tumors in adults.
