Breast cancer continues to increase in frequency and approximately
one million women per year are now diagnosed with the disease.
There have been significant advances in our understanding and
treatment of breast cancer and these have led to significant
reductions in mortality. This book summarises current knowledge on
breast cancer and provides a succinct, didactic comprehensive
approach outlining how women with suspected breast cancer should be
investigated and once a diagnosis is established, how they should
be treated. The book is written by senior authors throughout Europe
and the United States. It is aimed at doctors involved in the
investigation and treatment of patients with breast cancer and it
will also be valuable to breast care nurses, trainees and some
senior medical students.
