This handbook provides a useful guide for the day-to-day management of people with breast cancer. It covers the journey from diagnosis to post-treatment comprehensive care. It explains when and why different treatment modalities are used, what the complications of both the disease and treatments are and how to manage them.
Although this book has been written for students and health personnel working in a general hospital, it will be useful for those in specialist breast units as well.
Dr Jenny Edge is a surgeon and head of Breast and Endocrine Surgery at the University of Stellenbosch.
Dr Ines Buccimazza is head of the Breast Unit, member of the Multidisciplinary Breast Team and a senior specialist in the Department of Surgery at the Nelson R. Mandela School of Medicine at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban.
