This monograph gives a complete update on breast cancer, an update that has been sorely lacking in the literature for over a decade. Part I deals with pathology, diagnosis, and other aspects. The excellent chapter on pathology features numerous photographs. The chapter on the psychological impact of breast cancer is also unique. Part II discusses all modern treatment procedures. These include not only the conservative and radical aspects of surgery, but also limited surgery. Frontline radiotherapy is presented in detail as well as the technical aspects of radiotherapy of the breast. Chemotherapy and hormone therapy are described as adjuvant therapy or as primary therapy for advanced breast cancer. This up-to-date volume should be on the bookshelf of every oncologist and radiotherapist.
