Breast cancer became increasingly common in women of Western societies during the 20th century. Other than skin cancer, it is now the most common cancer for women in Western countries. This general guide to breast cancer for the non medical reader gives a positive and sympathetic account of the nature of breast cancer, its incidence, risk factors, symptoms and treatment.
To understand the problems of breast cancer, it is important to first undertand somehting about cancers in general. Hence, this book gives a description of cancers in general before special reference is made to the specific aspects of breast cancer.
The book provides background information about the structure and fuction of the breast, the causes of cancer in general and the factors associated with breaqst cancer in particular. It goes on to examine in detail the treatment of breast cancer and its management.
The final part of the book summarises future direction for incidence, investigation and treatment of breast cancer based on current research, and likely future avenues of research.
