There have been very significant advances across many areas of the study, investigation and treatment of breast cancer. This publication surveys how scientific advances have influenced, improved and extended therapeutic options. The volume spans prevention, screening, genetics, and treatment of pre-invasive breast cancer, before focusing in depth on management of established breast cancer. This includes chapters on the various therapeutic options available and their role in treating breast cancer from the very earliest stage through to advanced and metastatic breast cancer. In addition, the text looks forward at the potential for emerging experimental strategies to become adopted into medical management in the future. The volume concludes with a chapter on palliative care. This wide-ranging account will be essential for breast cancer specialists, trainees in oncology and clinical research scientists.
