xvi + 152 indexed pages including b/w illustrations and references. 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 of 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 understand something about cancers in general. Hence, this book gives a general description of cancers and factors associated with breast 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 directions for incidence, investigation, and treatment of breast cancer based on current research, and likely future avenues of research.
