Preneoplasia of the Breast A New Conceptual Approach to Proliferative Breast Disease



Preneoplasia of the Breast A New Conceptual Approach to Proliferative Breast Disease by Professor, Dr. Werner Boecker

Safe and accurate preoperative diagnosis of breast lesions is crucial to spare patients unnecessary, disfiguring operations. The book covers the clinical, radiological and histological diagnosis of benign proliferative breast disease and precursor lesions of breast cancer. It focuses on a new immunohistochemical method based on an innovative progenitor cell concept of breast epithelium that has been developed by Prof. Boecker, Prof. Schnitt and Prof. Silverstein. This technique can also be used for small samples (percutaneous core biopsy) and offers high specificity, and therefore provides a greater degree of diagnostic security. The practical applicability and interpretation of the technique are integrated into a comprehensive description of all benign and malignant noninvasive proliferative diseases of the breast, including: Interpretation of histologic samples attained by stereotactic biopsy (including immunohistochemistry)Comparison of radiologic and pathologic findingsAction to be taken in the case of in-situ malignomaTreatment of DICS.FEATURES describes a new immunohistochemical method - written by the method's pioneerswith contributions from renowned European and American pathologists, radiologists and clinicians.
