The risk is further heightened by a prevailing trend of late presentation and delayed diagnosis, combined with a complete absence of screening and early detection services designed for the public sector. Mr Olubowale explores these important issues in providing an overview of treatment of breast cancer lesions and identifies relevant considerations at each stage of the disease. He discusses the aetiology and presentation of different types of breast cancer and explains the histological basis for making diagnostic and management decisions in secondary care.
