About the Authors
  • This new publication discusses the significant advances in the study, investigation and treatment of breast cancer and surveys how scientific advances have influenced, improved, and extended modern therapeutic options. The volume spans prevention, screening, genetics, and treatment of pre-invasive breast cancer, before focusing in depth on modern management of established breast cancer. This volume includes chapters on the various therapeutic options available and their role in treating breast cancer from the very earliest stage through to advanced and metastatic breast cancer, as well as a chapter on palliative care. In addition, the text looks forward at the potential for emerging experimental strategies to become adopted into medical management in the future.

    • Comprehensive account of all aspects of breast cancer management
    • Extends from basic science to clinical practice
    • Looks ahead at the prospects for emerging experimental strategies to become new therapeutic options

    "The editors of this highly commendable publication have produced a most reader-friendly and informative reference book, which should not only be made available to those clinicians who deal with cancers of the breast, but also to researchers in the field and general practitioners." I.D. Werner, SAMJ Forum
