Diseases of the Breast
Fourth Edition
by Jay R. Harris

Diseases of the Breast summarizes the current knowledge of breast diseases, including their clinical features, management, underlying biologies, and epidemiologies.

In addition to complete coverage of malignant breast diseases, benign diseases are discussed in relation to subsequent breast cancer development.

Diseases of the Breast reviews all major clinical trials and summarizes the information they provide on early detection and management of breast cancer.

Close attention is also given to the increasing importance of molecular biology and genetics in this field. This edition features:

  • more than thirty new contributors
  • fourteen new or completely rewritten chapters
  • more clinically oriented chapters
  • a companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank
