Although the mortality rates of breast cancer are falling—testimony to the success of interventional strategies in the form of screening and adjuvant systemic therapies—incidence of the disease is rising worldwide. This thoroughly revised third edition discusses the principles and practice of early breast cancer management within the context of the multidisciplinary team, and includes comprehensive sections on risk assessment, prevention, screening, imaging, diagnostics, pathology, and treatment.

Praise for the Previous Editions
"Early breast cancer calls for a specially designed multidisciplinary approach to management, challenging radiologists, surgeons, pathologists, and oncologists to adopt new concepts and strategies. To this end, all the specialized fields involved will benefit from the most comprehensive knowledge currently available on the subject. Early Breast Cancer conveys the relevant data without losing sight of clinical relevance. The information in this book shows how a growing number of patients can profit from timely diagnosis and treatment and substantially increase their chances of surviving breast cancer."

"The book demands space on many bookshelves, because it is possibly the best reference book to date on the subjects it covers."
