Leading experts in the field of breast disease have compiled an up-to-date practical handbook that encapsulates current thinking on a wide range of topics from normal breast anatomy through the management of Stage IV breast cancer. One-third of the chapters are devoted to the woman who has not yet developed breast cancer, thus reflecting the current emphasis on prevention and the study of genetics. The 11 chapters cover breast and axilla anatomy; assessment and investigation of common symptoms; benign breast disease; risk factors, screening, and prevention; pathology, prognosis, and staging; imaging; treatment (surgery, adjuvant therapy, and radiation); sentinel lymph node mapping; and hereditary breast cancer. Contains many b&w illustrations. Edited by Borgen (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center) and Hill (St. Vincent's U. Hospital). Spiral binding. Annotation c.
