Now in its Second Edition, this pioneering classic text contains the most complete discussion of DCIS available in the medical market. It includes a DCIS review and also covers biology, detection, diagnosis, pathology, psychology, and the treatment of the disease. Contributing surgeons, pathologists, radiation and medical oncologists, psychiatrists, and a medical geneticist write chapters in this multidisciplinary and comprehensive book. In cases where applicable, both sides of an issue are presented and followed by a summary or commentary from the editors. New to this edition are the deletion of four previous chapters and the addition of seven new chapters. There is a greater emphasis on screening and early detection that includes the increased role of genetics and molecular biology, as well as therapeutic options. The book also reviews standard treatment practices of many breast centers around the world.
