Screening and early detection have improved our ability to detect lesions at increasingly earlier stages of growth. Physicians are seeking a better understanding of these lesions and their early bioloy in order to provide optimal treatment and patient care. Pathology of Incipient Neoplasia brings together all of the information available on the clinicopathological features of precancerous lesions, defined to include atypical hyperplasias, in-situ changes, microinvasive or very small cancers in some sites, and other lesions recognised as potential presursors for invasive cancer. In some tissues, bengin tumours may serve as precursors to malignant tumours, and therefore these are also considered. Organised by organ, each heavily-illustrated chapter is written by a well-recognised expert, to stress different facets of preneoplasia and minimally invasive tumors in that given tissue. A chapter on salivary glands, and more than 350 colour photos interspersed throughout the text, are new to this edition.
