Breast tumors are one of the most worrisome and challenging problems for surgeons and pathologists. In this book, the authors present research in the study of the epidemiology, management and prevention of breast tumors; some examples of these types of breast cancer are DCIS, LCIS, IDC, ILC, medullary carcinoma, metaplastic carcinoma, papillary carcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, and rare tumors of the breast. This book is useful to surgeons and pathologists, postgraduates in understanding the pathology for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of these tumors. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)

Women undergoing BCS alone were also more likely to experience a local recurrence than women treated with mastectomy. We found no study showing a mortality reduction associated with mastectomy over breast conserving surgery with or without radiation.
