About the Authors
  • Featuring 37 detailed case studies, with comprehensive explanatory text and full colour illustrations, this book provides any healthcare professional involved in breast cancer with clear guidelines and helpful pointers on the aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of this important and widespread condition. All cases are based on real cases encountered by the author, and provide the reader with realistic scenarios against which to judge their own treatment decisions and upon which to base teaching sessions.

    • Case study format gives access to important clinical information in an easily understood and digestible way
    • Fully illustrated in colour throughout
    • Structured text takes the reader through each case by presenting a series of questions and answers, in much the same way as they might work through a real clinical case
