Breast Cancer

Front Cover
Health Press, 2002 - Medical - 114 pages
There is an enormous amount of activity in the field of breast cancer research and treatment although progress is not really being made. One of the problems in making progress is that the disease has a very long and unpredictable natural history. Though the underlying biology of breast cancer remains the same, treatments are both culturally dependent and constantly changing. For example, based on the same experimental data more chemotherapy may be offered in the USA than in the UK or Canada. Surgery is also less radical now because the radical regional surgical approach was not a success. In recognizing this we have learned about breast cancer as a systemic disease. The purpose of Fast Facts: Breast Cancer is to sort out the facts from the fallacies and to provide the busy clinician or clinical nurse specialist with rapid access to information that should make their difficult and sensitive task that much easier.
