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.
