includes a separate chapter on the biological basis for breast cancer screening and its relevance to current screening strategies both within the NHS screening programme and elsewhere. Offers a critical appraisal of breast screening in women over and more controversially under 50 years of age where transatlantic differences in practice exist includes a chapter on radiology of benign breast lesions and the emerging role of newer techniques such as MRI and PET scanning contains comprehensive coverage of breast pathology from normal and benign breast lesions, through pre-malignant, in situ and finally invasive carcinoma This book discusses the principles and practice of breast cancer management within the context of multidisciplinary team working and places emphasis on pragmatism. The text provides a comprehensive and contemporary account of the subject and should permit the reader to develop a firm understanding of the disease from epidemiology, genetics and screening, to pathology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. This in turn will enable healthcare personnel to deliver a high quality and up-to-date service to breast cancer sufferers.
