About this book

The theory of the sick lobe states that breast carcinoma is a lobar disease developing most often within a single lobe, meaning that, at an early stage, breast carcinoma occupies a limited, anatomically well-defined portion of the breast. This theory unites observed patterns from the genetic, developmental and morphological perspectives, into an overall concept. Breast Cancer: A Lobar Disease, presents this hypothesis and its consequences. The body of evidence, pro and contra, generated in recent years is presented in this volume. The chapters, all authored by leading experts in their respective areas, gather evidence from the perspectives of epidemiology, genetics, radiology, anatomy, developmental biology, morphology, endoscopy, ultrasound and therapeutics to give the reader a full picture of recent developments regarding the sick lobe hypothesis. Tibor Tot, MD PhD is Head of the Pathology and Clinical Cytology Department at the Central Hospital of Falun, in Sweden; breast cancer expert of the National Board of Health and Welfare in Sweden; and regular Course Director of the breast pathology program, the official educational program for Swedish residents in clinical pathology, oncology, radiology and surgery.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a very reasonable objective as the etiology of breast cancer remains uncertain. The book meets this objective to a degree, as it brings forward much useful information regarding the concept of the ‘sick lobe’. It would be of interest to anyone studying the biology of breast cancer. The book covers labor anatomy, embryology, molecular aspects of labor development and cancer formation. … Overall, most chapters are interesting and likely will add to the fund of knowledge of even experienced breast cancer practitioners.” (Frederick M. Dirbas, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2012)
