About this book

This guide provides practical information that will assist clinicians involved in the diagnosis, assessment, treatment, and follow-up care of patients with triple-negative breast cancer. After opening chapters on the pathologic evaluation, clinical presentation, genetics, and imaging features, the full range of current treatment approaches is thoroughly reviewed from a multidisciplinary perspective. Readers will find up-to-date information and guidance on surgical management, radiation therapy, tailored adjuvant therapy, neoadjuvant treatment, systemic treatment for metastatic disease, molecular profiling, and targeted therapy. The coverage is completed by discussion of special issues in young women with triple-negative breast cancer and individualization of the management approach in older patients affected with the disease. All healthcare professionals who care for patients with triple-negative breast cancer will find the book to be an invaluable source of expert advice on the issues faced in real-world practice.

Reviews

“It offers a succinct summary of the current evidence and research – past and present – which is continually informing our surgical, radiological, pathological and oncological practices. … this book is also a tribute to our determination to refine and transform TNBC into a treatable entity. … The target audience is the medical oncologist, fellow in training and any healthcare professional.” (Jasmin Lee, Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, Issue. 183, July, 2018)

“The guide is quite specialized and is written with practicing oncologists, fellows, and oncology nurses in mind. … this excellent book is rather unique because it is a practical handbook … scholarly treatise on the subject. It is a pleasure to read and a worthwhile addition to the personal collection of every medical oncologist treating this disease.” (Ravi Salgia, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2018)
