About this book

Excluding skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer occurring in women and certainly the most feared. In Breast Cancer: A Guide to Detection and Multidisciplinary Therapy, Michael H. Torosian, MD, and a panel of physicians and clinical researchers critically synthesize the wide variety of treatment options available to create a state-of-the-art reference for the management of breast cancer patients. Writing from a multidisciplinary perspective, these authoritative contributors review in the light of the most recent findings the major clinical aspects of breast cancer, including epidemiology and risk factors, breast imaging, biopsy techniques, breast-conserving surgery and reconstruction, mastectomy, and the latest developments in radiation, hormonal, and chemotherapy. Their expert discussion also addresses special clinical situations (adjuvant chemotherapy, axillary adenopathy as initial presentation, breast cancer during pregnancy, and sarcoma and lymphoma of the breast) and explains current clinical controversies (breast-conserving surgery without radiation therapy, axillary lymph node management, and management of internal mammary lymph nodes). Also spelled out are the potential implications of stem cell transplantation, immunotherapy, and gene therapy for the management of breast cancer patients in the future.
Multidisciplinary and clinically invaluable, Breast Cancer: A Guide to Detection and Multidisciplinary Therapy offers physicians and health care personnel an understandable state-of-the-art guide to the best care of breast cancer patients available today.

Reviews

"The great strength of the book is its multidisciplinary format. In virtually all aspects of cancer treatment, optimal cancer management is becoming a coordinated effort among multiple experts. Breast Cancer...seeks to gather experts from a wide array of oncology disciplines to provide the reader with a broad and balanced perspective on the optimal management of breast cancer." - Robert C. Young, MD, President, American Cancer Society

"We have here a well-illustrated, concisely prepared "state of the art" text, with which most questions about mammary cancer can be competently answered. A book for everyone who takes care of women (and men) with breast cancer" - Swiss Surg

"The presented book is really an up-to-date source of the modern achievements for various fields of breast cancer managements. The excellently prepared book can be fully recommended to a wide scale of specialists, as medical oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, internal medicine specialists and even for primary care physicians." -Neoplasma
