Breast cancers are now detected earlier and are thus more likely to be confined to the breast itself and regional nodes. Many of these tumours will have minimal proclivity for hematogenous dissemination and formation of micrometastases. On the other hand, some patients have micrometastatic diseases which can remain dormant and be activated many years after initial diagnosis.
Early Breast Cancer: From Screening to Multidisciplinary Management discusses the principles and practice of breast cancer management with respect to both screen-detected and symptomatic disease. It provides readers with sound understanding and critical insight into many aspects of the disease from epidemiology, genetics, and screening to pathology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. This latest edition continues the general ethos of the second edition with an emphasis on early screening and continued development of the multidisciplinary team.

Praise for the Previous Editions
"Early breast cancer calls for a specially designed multidisciplinary approach to management, challenging radiologists, surgeons, pathologists, and oncologists to adopt new concepts and strategies. To this end, all the specialized fields involved will benefit from the most comprehensive knowledge currently available on the subject. Early Breast Cancer conveys the relevant data without losing sight of clinical relevance. The information in this book shows how a growing number of patients can profit from timely diagnosis and treatment and substantially increase their chances of surviving breast cancer."
-New England Journal of Medicine, September 1999
"The book demands space on many bookshelves, because it is possibly the best reference book to date on the subjects it covers."
-New England Journal of Medicine, June 2006
