Because most cancer care is delivered in the community setting, Breast Cancer, edited by Dr. James L. Weese, looks at the management of breast cancer through the lens of multidisciplinary pathways focused on evidence-based, real-world care of breast cancer patients in the community.

A multidisciplinary team of expert authors provides state-of-the-art guidance from the perspective of community practitioners using an evidence-based model, clearly showing the thought processes used to make treatment decisions in today's breast cancer management.

  • Discusses all the latest breakthrough therapies for breast cancer, including chemotherapeutic, molecular, and immunologic agents, as well as new developments in precision-based medicine, pharmacology, breast cancer surgery, breast and lymphatic reconstruction, radiation therapy, and more.

  • Provides strategies for targeted radiation therapy and conservative breast surgery for contemporary breast cancer treatment

  • Features more than 200 high-quality figures throughout, including pathways, anatomic, radiographic, and graphic images.

  • Models a consistent, team-based thought process used at leading academic institutions to foster consistent decision making applied to the community setting.

  • Includes key points at the beginning of each chapter that highlight essential concepts and topics

  • An ideal resource for practicing medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and radiation therapists, trainees and practitioners in related fields, and oncology nurses and case managers.
