Breast cancer is the most common female malignancy. This book reviews the evidence that estrogens are a major influence of risk to and growth of breast cancer. The book indicates how the breast and its tumors may obtain estrogen from different sources and display distinctive patterns and levels of estrogen. It also illustrates how increasing knowledge of the mechanism of estrogen action is leading to new strategies for not only women with breast cancer but also those at high risk for the disease.
