We have entered a new era in breast cancer management where disease is "small" and more likely to be confined to the breast and regional nodes. Some of these tumours will have minimal proclivity for hematogenous dissemination and formation of micrometastases at an early stage in the neoplastic process. By contrast, some patients have micrometastatic diseases which can remain dormant and be activated many years after the diagnosis. Early Breast Cancer: From Screening to Multidisciplinary Management discusses the principles and practice of breast cancer management within the context of the multidisciplinary team working with respect to both screen-detected and symptomatic disease. It also includes coverage of key areas of contemporary interest and potential controversy.

The book 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 breast cancer screening and continued development of the multidisciplinary team.
