Breast Cancer, Second Edition, is the seventh book in the M. D. Anderson Cancer Care Series. This book, like the others in this series, highlights M. D. Anderson Cancer Center's multidisciplinary approach and reviews the entire spectrum of patient care, from prevention and screening through diagnosis and treatment through posttreatment follow-up and survivorship issues. This new edition of Breast Cancer has been extensively revised and updated. It covers newer approaches adopted since the first edition of this book was published in 2001, such as new options for breast cancer prevention, the role of MRI screening for women at high risk for breast cancer development, and integration of trastuzumab (Herceptin) into treatment regimens for early breast cancer. A number of new tables and figures have been added as well. In 19 comprehensive yet concise chapters, the experts at M. D. Anderson discuss primary prevention of breast cancer, screening for early detection of breast cancer, genetic predisposition to breast cancer and genetic counseling and testing, diagnostic imaging, pathology, surgical options, reconstructive surgery, radiation therapy, prognostic markers, standard and high-dose chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, gynecologic problems in breast cancer patients, posttreatment rehabilitation, menopausal health after breast cancer, and sexuality in breast cancer survivors. This thorough, practical volume, which includes more than 70 figures and 30 tables, is an essential clinical guide for oncologists, surgeons, internists, family practitioners, and other health care providers involved in the care of patients with breast cancer
