Excluding skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer occurring in women and certainly the most feared. In Breast Cancer: A Guide to Detection and Multidisciplinary Therapy, Michael H. Torosian, MD, and a panel of physicians and clinical researchers critically synthesize the wide variety of treatment options available to create a state-of-the-art reference for the management of breast cancer patients. Writing from a multidisciplinary perspective, these authoritative contributors review in the light of the most recent findings the major clinical aspects of breast cancer, including epidemiology and risk factors, breast imaging, biopsy techniques, breast-conserving surgery and reconstruction, mastectomy, and the latest developments in radiation, hormonal, and chemotherapy. Their expert discussion also addresses special clinical situations (adjuvant chemotherapy, axillary adenopathy as initial presentation, breast cancer during pregnancy, and sarcoma and lymphoma of the breast) and explains current clinical controversies (breast-conserving surgery without radiation therapy, axillary lymph node management, and management of internal mammary lymph nodes). Also spelled out are the potential implications of stem cell transplantation, immunotherapy, and gene therapy for the management of breast cancer patients in the future. Multidisciplinary and clinically invaluable, Breast Cancer: A Guide to Detection and Multidisciplinary Therapy offers physicians and health care personnel an understandable state-of-the-art guide to the best care of breast cancer patients available today
