Completely revised and updated, with 24 brand-new chapters, the Third Edition of this definitive reference is a must for all clinicians who treat benign or malignant breast diseases. This edition features two new sections on pathology, biological markers, and staging of breast cancer and adjuvant systemic therapy of primary breast cancer. Other new chapters cover imaging, pathogenesis of breast cancer, special therapeutic problems, and breast cancer in young women. Treatment-oriented chapters have been reorganized for greater depth of coverage. An up-to-the-minute "late-breaking" page has been added to many chapters just before publication. This edition also includes new full-color pathology illustrations.
