"This publication is dedicated to a comprehensive overview of breast cancer in young women for all members of the healthcare team who treat women with breast cancer. Breast cancer requires multidisciplinary management, and as such this book provides input from epidemiology, basic science, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, genetics, reproductive endocrinology, psychology and nursing. Because breast cancer in young women occurs during the reproductive years, additional emphasis is placed on managing breast cancer in pregnant patients, as well as reproductive options for breast cancer survivors. The contributors to this volume comprise 30 experts from 6 academic institutions across 10 disciplines. By presenting a clear and comprehensive review of all aspects of breast cancer treatment in young women, the contributors hope to have provided a valuable resource to assist with patient care for all members of the multidisciplinary breast cancer team."
