  6. Early Breast Cancer

    From Screening to Multidisciplinary Management, Third Edition

    Edited by John R Benson, Gerald P.H. Gui, Todd Tuttle

    Breast cancers are now detected earlier and are thus more likely to be confined to the breast itself and regional nodes. Many of these tumours will have minimal proclivity for hematogenous dissemination and formation of micrometastases. On the other hand, some patients have micrometastatic diseases...
