Breast disease; v.26


In introducing the book edition of an issue of the journal Breast Disease, v.26 (2006/2007, ISSN 0888-6008) devoted to metastasis, Wakefield and Hunter (National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, Maryland) note that 90 percent of all cancer deaths are due to the spreading of the primary tumor to distant organs. Recurrence with metastasis is especially unpredictable in breast cancer. Their overview of these statistics and challenges frames 13 chapters treating myths needing to be overturned in redefining metastasis and cancer staging, new insights into/models of its pathogenesis as a disease of disordered cell interactions and tissue architecture, factors that prime this progression, and the implications of this biology and cancer stem cells for treatment. The volume includes several color illustrations.
