Common Breast Lesions : A Photographic Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment
Generously illustrated with over 700 photographs, drawings, histopathology slides, radiographs, and mammographs, this color atlas provides a step-by-step guide to the differential diagnosis and treatment of the most prevalent diseases of the breast. Organized around primary patient complaints, part one covers benign tumors, malignant carcinomas, pain, and various symptoms of the skin and nipple-areola complex. This is followed by a multidisciplinary review of the respective techniques of the clinician, radiologist, pathologist, surgeon, and reconstructive surgeon. Illustrated from the editor's authoritative collection of over 14000 patient records and written by a multidisciplinary team, this photographic atlas provides a guide to proper clinical examination; diagnostic and interventional radiography; diagnostic pathology; surgical biopsy; surgical excision of benign lesions; breast conservation surgery; total, modified radical, and radical mastectomies; and reconstructive surgery. Clinicians will find this guide invaluable in diagnosing and treating the most common cancer affecting women today.

"This is a very good introduction of breast disease for the beginning student of medicine. It could easily be digested during a rotation on the breast service without overloading the initial student with esoteric information. The highlights are the prolific use of pictures helping to bridge the gap of the assumed reader's limited clinic experience. The section of surgical treatment is a good mini atlas for the student about to observe the operative treatment." Doody's Review Service "...Common Breast Lesions is a welcome addition to currently available textbooks in breast diseases, given its simplicity and high quality. It will provide medical students and residents with a useful tool for the multidisciplinary approach to breast lesions." Oncology
