Chapters examine risk factors and prevention strategies, trends and developments in imaging, surgical management, radiotherapy advances, adjuvant endocrine and chemotherapies, targeted metastatic therapy, and the role of bisphosphonates and novel bone agents in breast cancer. With this volume the oncology practitioner will have a full and current overview of all significant current trends in this important area of oncology.
