The ABC of Breast Diseases provides comprehensive guidance to the assessment of symptoms, and how to manage all common breast conditions and provides guidelines on referral. It covers congenital problems, breast infection and mastalgia, before addressing the epidemiology, prevention, screening and diagnosis of breast cancer. It outlines the treatment and management options for breast cancer within different groups and includes new chapters on the genetics, prevention, management of high risk women and the psychological aspects of breast diseases. Edited and written by internationally renowned experts in the field and highly illustrated in full colour, this fourth edition remains a practical guide for general practitioners, family physicians, practice nurses and breast care nurses as well as for surgeons and oncologists both in training and recently qualified as well as medical students.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
" up-to-date, concise, clear, superbly illustrated (pictures, tables and diagrams), evidence-based work that covers all the various aspects of breast cancer (including breast reconstruction, male breast cancer etc.), as well as benign breast conditions.
[The authors]...are also commended for their balanced, nuanced account of breast cancer. They describe what 'we think we know and understand' as well as the challenges, uncertainties and unknowns of breast diseases. The book provides a thorough overview of adjuvant therapy (including the new aromatase inhibitor trails) and metastatic breast cancer, as well as excellent chapters on the systematic treatment of primary operable breast cancer (with reference to ongoing trials) and on clinical trials on the management of early breast cancer. Highly recommended for all non-specialists interested in this topic." (Cancerworld, May-June 2006)
