Breast Cancer

Free Breast Cancer Ebooks

Worldwide, breast cancer is by far the most common cancer amongst women, with an incidence rate more than twice that of colorectal cancer and cervical cancer and about three times that of lung cancer. Whilst screening programs have improved detection, this disease still places a very high burden on healthcare services worldwide. Over the last two decades, improved public awareness, the implementation of population screening by mammography, and the development of new technology for diagnosis have transformed the care of patients with breast cancer. In this volume, recognized experts discuss key current issues in the diagnosis and management of breast disease. The development and application of new diagnostic techniques is described as well as the use of sophisticated drugs for more effective treatment. Complex contentious topics including risk factors, borderline lesions, professional performance and quality assurance are thoroughly explored by an expert multidisciplinary team.

Hormone Therapy

Free Hormone Therapy Ebooks

In Hormone Therapy in Breast and Prostate Cancer, many of today's leading researchers and clinicians describe the principles underlying targeted hormonal treatments, assess the actions of new and established agents, and illustrate the new applications of hormonal chemoprevention for breast cancer. Topics range from preclinical and clinical antiestrogens to the inhibition of estrogen synthesis and the effects of androgen withdrawal. A wide variety of proven and new agents are discussed-antiestrogens, including aromatase inhibitors (anastrozole, letrozole, and others), SERMs (tamoxifen, raloxifene, and others), and such antiandrogenic strategies as goserelin and bicalutamide.

Challenges in Growth Hormone Therapy. The area of growth hormone therapy has been shrouded in controversy for several years. In the US, anxious parents apply pressure on doctors so their little ones can receive this elixir, regardless of whether there is a medical condition to treat. More recently, health care organizations have balked at the very high cost of growth hormone therapy, and with a greater consciousness of evidence-based medicine, there is also growing concerns about its efficacy. There are now fears about the safety of long-term growth hormone administration with possible risks of increased cardiovascular disease and diabetes, although the latter seems to be a temporary phenomenon. At the clinical level there are also uncertainties about proper optimum dosing schedules used for both children and adults, as well as how to manage the transition from childhood to adulthood (when to stop giving the hormone and how to follow up). Challenges in Growth Hormone Therapy tackles these issues and provides a timely and controversial review of these topics for endocrinologists and pediatricians.
