Breast cancer is the most common malignancy found in women. Primary care providers for women, including obstetricians and gynecologists, are often the first to detect abnormalities in their patients' health and are often the source that their patients trust most when it comes to medical issues. They must be knowledgeable about breast care even if the patient is under the care of a breast surgeon, medical oncologist, or radiation oncologist. A clear, concise, state-of-the-art resource, An Atlas of Breast Disease provides basic knowledge on anatomy, pathology, and the role of the primary care provider in breast care.
Filled with succinct color algorithms, charts, graphs, and figures, the Atlas presents complex information in brief, lucid, and easily understandable formats that can be quickly grasped by the reader. Numerous tables, illustrative mammograms, and key point summaries, drawn from the authors' clinical practice complement the text. Color photomicrographs of pertinent typical histology and pathology also add visual impact. These features and more make An Atlas of Breast Disease a practical refresher and clinical reference for primary care providers, obstetricians, and gynecologists managing the general health of patients with breast disease.
