Abstract
Women in developing nations experience higher incidence rates and higher mortality rates of breast and gynecological cancers, creating a critical need for cancer control programs that can use available, often scant, resources to match the existing disease burden. This book promotes integrating screening and early detection of breast and gynecological cancers through cost effective modalities like single visit screening and diagnosis, well woman clinics, and mobile clinics. International experts in the field weigh in on tested and proven methods for screening, early diagnosis, and prevention of these cancers in both rural and urban settings with varying levels of funding. Case studies from Brazil, Peru, the Middle East and Africa are included to illustrate particular aspects of screening, treatment, and funding. Breast and Gynecological Cancers: An Integrated Approach for Screening and Early Diagnosis in Developing Countries is a crucial compendium of information for all those concerned with the wellness of women worldwide.

Abstract
This book offers a comprehensive overview of the use of breast MRI for screening high-risk women, including those with familial-genetic hereditary predisposition and previous chest radiation therapy, typically lymphoma survivors. It discusses the historical background of studies and research that provided the body of evidence in favor of MRI screening of these women. Technical and clinical topics are treated in dedicated chapters, including models for individualized risk estimation, radiogenomics of breast cancer in high-risk women, computer-aided detection/diagnosis and machine learning systems applied to breast MRI, and psycho-oncology issues. Alternatives to breast MRI screening such as pharmaco-prevention and prophylactic mastectomy are also discussed, taking into account the public debate on the “Angelina Jolie” effect. The high breast cancer risk model is proposed as a paradigm for personalized medicine. This book will be of interest to radiologists, surgeons, oncologists and to all professionals devoted to female healthcare.

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.

Most deaths from carcinomas are caused by the hematogenous dissemination of cancer cells to distant organs and the eventual development of metastases. When found in the bone marrow or peripheral blood of carcinoma patients, occult cancer cells are referred to as disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) or circulating tumor cells (CTCs). CTCs and DTCs are considered surrogates of minimal residual disease, i.e., the presence of malignant cells in distant organs that are undetectable by conventional imagin…

Most deaths from carcinomas are caused by the hematogenous dissemination of cancer cells to distant organs and the eventual development of metastases. When found in the bone marrow or peripheral blood of carcinoma patients, occult cancer cells are referred to as disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) or circulating tumor cells (CTCs). CTCs and DTCs are considered surrogates of minimal residual disease, i.e., the presence of malignant cells in distant organs that are undetectable by conventional imaging and laboratory tests used for tumor staging after curative surgery of the primary tumor. In this book, leading investigators in the field provide up-to-date information on a series of important questions, including: How can the study of minimal residual disease and CTCs help us to better understand breast cancer metastasis? What technologies are available for the detection and characterization of CTCs and DTCs, and what are their relative merits? How are DTCs and CTCs relevant to clinical research and practice? What is the role of other blood-based biomarkers such as circulating endothelial cells and circulating nucleic acids? What are the challenges in drug and biomarker co-development and the use of CTCs for companion diagnostic development? This book will be of interest and assistance to all who are engaged in the modern management of breast cancer.

Abstract
This book presents the basic concepts for understanding and practicing breast pathology in routine practice. It explains how to tackle the diagnosis, emphasizing diagnostic clues for each entity as well as pitfalls and mimickers. Each chapter has concise, relevant text illustrated by numerous high-quality pictures highlighting the pearls and challenges in the diagnosis of breast lesions. Experts from around the world describe common and rarer conditions affecting the breast. Histology, immunohistochemistry, cytology, radiology and key morphologic criteria are covered. The book includes a chapter dedicated to breast normal histology, which is very important for understanding breast pathology, and a separate chapter for breast radiology, which is essential in understanding and diagnosing the breast lesions especially in a multidisciplinary team. Also, there is a chapter with the latest TNM staging system as well as the recently revised World Health Organization classification of breast tumors. Since in many breast units the cytology is still used to diagnose breast lesions there is a chapter dedicated to this technique. This book is aimed at trainees and practicing pathologists in surgical pathology, particularly those with an interest in breast pathology and those tackling the daily sign-out.

Abstract
This comprehensive volume reviews current topics and controversies in diagnostic breast pathology, and addresses frequently encountered diagnostic problems using a question and answer format and case presentations. Emphasis is placed on the diagnostic approach as it relates to morphology, clinical and radiographic correlation, differential diagnosis, and ancillary testing including immunohistochemical and molecular analyses. Answers are provided and serve as a practical, evidence-based, and problem solving guide to diagnostic issues having significant impacts on clinical management. Common but diagnostically challenging entities such as papillary lesions and fibroepithelial lesions are discussed in detail, as well as special types of breast cancer including solid papillary carcinoma, lobular lesions and its variants. Uncommon breast lesions such as mesenchymal, lymphoid, and metastatic lesions are also covered. Chapters discuss genetic alterations and molecular abnormalities in breast cancer, and commonly encountered interpretation dilemmas on immunohistochemistry in breast cancer and metastatic cancer to the breast with a focus on prognostic and predictive tumor biomarkers.
Contents
Intraductal Proliferative Disease of the Breast -- Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (NOS) of the Breast -- Invasive Carcinoma of the Breast: Special Types -- Lobular Breast Lesions -- Papillary Lesions of the Breast (IDP, IDPC, EPC, SPC) -- Fibroepothelial Lesions (Phyllodes Tumor and Fibroadenoma) of the Breast -- Immunohistochemistry in Breast Cancer -- Breast Cancer with Hereditary Cancer Predisposition Syndromes -- Mesenchymal and Lymphoid Lesions in the Breast -- Metastatic Cancer in the Breast.
