Each topic and tumor type is covered in a volume appearing frequently and predictably, discussing current diagnosis, staging, markers, all forms of treatment modalities, basic biology, and more.Neoplastic growth of leukemia, prostate carcinoma, endometrial carcinoma, and breast carcinoma has long been ... that cyclical estrogens plus progestins in the form of oral contraceptives do not significantly enhance the risk of breast canceranbsp;...
