  • Details

Breast Cancer offers a comprehensive and in-depth review of the current literature of breast cancer.

Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer as the leading cancer cause of death in women. In 2010 207,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and over 39,000 are expected to die from breast cancer.

Nevertheless, ongoing research and recent advances in both diagnostic and therapeutic modalities continue to make breast cancer management a rapidly evolving area in which the practitioner will want to be fully updated on current developments.

Chapters examine risk factors and prevention strategies, trends and developments in imaging, surgical management, radiotherapy advances, adjuvant endocrine and chemotherapies, targeted metastatic therapy, and the role of bisphosphonates and novel bone agents in breast cancer. With this volume the oncology practitioner will have a full and current overview of all significant current trends in this important area of oncology.
