A Concise History of Breast Cancer

My book "A Concise History of Breast Cancer" (Nova Science Publishers, 2011, ISBN 978-1-61122-305-7 or 978-1-61122-603-4 -ebook-) is available.

Book Description:
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer and the
second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. It is
estimated that breast cancer affects more than 1,000,000 women
worldwide each year, and about 450,000 die from the disease. During
the last decades, breast cancer has received considerable attention,
yet it is a very old disease that was described years and years ago.
This book provides a summary of breast cancer history. It covers the
ages from the ancient times to the early 2000's, but mainly focuses on
the 20th century and its numerous discoveries and inventions in the
field of breast cancer detection, analysis and treatment.
