Abstract
This book presents the broad morphologic spectrum of the most commonly encountered diseases of the uterine corpus and cervix in an easy-to-use, practically relevant format. It emphasizes the morphologic and immunophenotypic features of disease entities, with some additional coverage of normal histology, but is not meant to be a comprehensive treatise on all aspects of uterine surgical pathology. The book is divided into 12 chapters that reflect broad clinicopathologic categorizations and presumed lines of differentiation, with 6 chapters each on uterine corpus and uterine cervix diseases. Short clinicopathologic summary descriptions are presented as figure legends for each entity, emphasizing the most salient information. The image selection focuses on classical appearances as well as less common morphologic variations. Selected images that depict classical immunophenotypes are also presented and discussed. The Atlas of Uterine Pathology serves as a very useful resource to practitioners and trainees of uterine surgical pathology, as well as to clinicians and investigators interested in the morphology of uterine diseases.

Abstract
The days of surgical excision for any atypical lesion have been replaced by more nuanced decision making and individualized patient management. Current management of many of these lesions continues to be controversial in regard to observation with close surveillance versus the need for surgical excision of these lesions based on future risk or whether these lesions are precursor lesion. The goal of this book is to provide a concise but comprehensive review of atypical breast proliferative lesions and their management complexities. New data about breast cancer, risk factors for breast cancer, pathological features unique to each entity, the characteristic findings on imaging, risk stratification for genetic testing, as well as the current evidence-based management of each of these breast lesions are discussed in full detail. Assessment tools for risk prediction of breast cancer are also highlighted as chapters run the gamut of current imaging modalities, as well as advanced screening options available for diagnosis and following these patients. Atypical Breast Proliferative Lesions and Benign Breast Disease will undoubtedly become a valuable resource for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, breast and surgical oncology fellows, genetic counselors, geneticists, as well as other clinicians and surgeons who are referred and manage these complex breast patients. All chapters in this text are written by experts in the field who have research and clinical interest in each of these disease entities, and include the most up-to-date research and clinical information to enhance our understanding and treatment of patients.

Abstract
This contributed book covers all aspects concerning the clinical scenario of breast cancer in young women, providing physicians with the latest information on the topic. Young women are a special subset of patients whose care requires dedicated expertise. The book, written and edited by internationally recognized experts who have been directly involved in the international consensus guidelines for breast cancer in young women, pays particular attention to how the disease and its planned treatment can be effectively communicated to young patients. Highly informative and carefully structured, it provides both theoretical and practice-oriented insight for practitioners and professionals involved in the different phases of treatment, from diagnosis to intervention, to follow-up – without neglecting the important role played by prevention.

Abstract
This text is designed to present a practical and concise handbook on the diagnosis and management of breast diseases for quick reference by trainees and practitioners. It emphasizes the approach to diagnosis and management of breast tumors written from the perspectives of each member of the multidisciplinary management team (pathologist, radiologist, medical oncologist, surgical oncologist and radiation oncologist). The text is divided into two sections. The first section is written by each subspecialty with focus on the overview and management of breast tumors,current controversies and position statement,and emphasis on cost effectiveness and quality assurance. The radiology overview addresses questions such as when to perform breast imaging, the difference between screening and diagnostic mammograms, when to perform Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, the meaning of radiological descriptors, and lastly the cost effectiveness and quality assurance of radiologic assessment of breast tumors. The pathology overview addresses approaches to evaluation of breast biopsies and excision for calcifications, densities, distortion, asymmetry and masses, pitfalls to histologic interpretations, the utility of immunohistochemical stains when immunohistochemical stains are not helpful, quality assurance and cost effectiveness, and current controversies and position statements. Surgical, medical and radiation oncology overviews address when to treat and when to refrain, current treatment options or modalities and the factors informing choice, utility of genomics or molecular diagnostics in management, cost effectiveness and quality assurance, and controversies and position statements. The second section discusses common breast tumors (from the perspectives of each member of the management team) using the practical approach highlighted in the first section. The entities discussed include but are not limited to fibroepithelial tumors, papillary lesions, spindle cell lesions, in-situ and invasive carcinomas (including subtypes), vascular lesions, lymphoproliferative disorders and metastasis to breast. The uniqueness of this book is the focus on the integrated subspecialty approaches with perspectives from each subspecialty and emphasis on how each member of the multidisciplinary team can contribute to the optimal care of the breast cancer patient. The text aims to bridge the gap of the "what next" question and foster a comprehensive, team approach for trainees and practicing physicians by providing information about specific entities from diagnosis to treatment. The uniformity of the format of each chapter allows for quick reference. Generous illustrations and tables in the text enhance appreciation of the entities being discussed.

Abstract
This book provides up-to-date information on all aspects of ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast, including epidemiology, imaging, pathologic and biologic features, interventional diagnostics, nonpalpable lesion localization, and treatment. Surgical procedures are described in detail, covering breast conservation techniques, conservative mastectomies, breast reconstruction options, and axillary surgery. Guidance is provided on how to ensure adequacy of surgical excision and avoid local recurrence when performing breast conservation surgery and how to minimize morbidity from axillary surgery. The role and techniques of partial and whole breast irradiation are described, and the use of adjuvant systemic therapy options, including endocrine therapy and chemotherapy, is explained. A concluding chapter addresses the issue of recurrence and its current management. This book, designed for ease of consultation, will be of value for all involved in the multidisciplinary care of patients with ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast, including surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, and radiotherapists.

Abstract
Gynecologic malignancies, especially endometrial and ovarian cancers are among the most important and most severely affected by obesity. This volume of Energy Balance and Cancer, written by the world's leading experts in this field, is arranged to provide a transdisciplinary assessment of the pertinent issues, results of relevant research on mechanisms, and control, strategies for dealing with affected patients and improving outcomes and future research needs. The volume comprehensively covers the epidemiology linking obesity to endometrial and ovarian cancer as well as the public awareness of this critical problem. Subsequent chapters explain biologic aspects of linkages between energy balance and gynecologic malignancies. The volume further outlines strategies to disrupt the linkage between obesity and gynecologic malignancies and concludes with a series of chapters focused on management strategies for obese patients with gynecologic malignancies. This volume provides a valuable resource for all physicians, scientists and other transdisciplinary investigators and practitioners interested and involved in energy balance and cancer. It should be a particularly useful guide to optimize outcomes for all practitioners dealing with patients with gynecologic malignancies challenged by energy balance issues. Moreover, it should serve as a useful guide to students and investigators interested in conducting further research on defining and disrupting the important linkage between energy balance and gynecologic malignancies.
