"This book provides an excellent overview in the management of early stage breast cancer – from triple assessment diagnosis to treatment and follow-up. The quick guide also includes risk factors, pathophysiology, screening and symptomatic presentation. The breast patient assessment questionnaire template is particularly useful for providing clear detailed information to any health care professional working/studying in the field of breast screening, diagnosis and treatment – such as breast specialist nurses, radiographers, physician associates, as well as radiologists and GP’s. I would recommend this book to any health care professional studying/working at an advanced/consultant level practice; they will find this book a valuable quick reference guide."
