Breast Cancer free pdf Considerable progress is being made in the field of oncology, and the rapid expansion of available information can often make it difficult for the busy practitioner to know which decisions are most appropriate in a given circumstance. The success of the "Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Atlas of Diagnostic Oncology" has led to the development of a series of disease management handbooks designed to aid the clinician with his or her decision making in clinical practice. Written by highly eminent authors, "Breast Cancer" is produced in full color and is richly illustrated throughout, providing a review of each cancer including its incidence, epidemiology, etiology and histopathology, together with the clinical features. Diagnostic studies and current clinical and pathological staging are also given. Detailed tables are provided with histopathological classification, diagnostic studies and, when important, prognostic factors. Current therapies are also discussed in detail, together with useful algorithms to aid treatment decisions. Practical issues relating to management are also given such as dealing with systemic and mucocutaneous reactions to chemotherapy, including alopecia, fatigue and extravasation.
