Dr. Christopher Li’s new book, Breast Cancer Epidemiology, tackles major issues concerning breast cancer, the leading cause of cancer morbidity worldwide.

Breast cancer incidence is still rising, particularly in developing countries. Because the 5-year survival rate of breast cancer has been improving steadily, it is now the most prevalent cancer, with an estimated 2 million breast cancer Author: Anna H.

Wu, Roberta McKean-Cowdin. This chapter on epidemiology of lung cancer will discuss the recent trends in lung cancer incidence and survival, briefly review the current topics that have been widely discussed at meetings and in the literature: lung cancer in never-smokers, lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomographic (CT), as well as present a summary of known.

This book differs in many ways from alternatives, for example: The concepts of epidemiology are discussed in detail, and in an integrated way. The concepts are dominant whereas in other books the methods dominate. The epidemiological idea of population is explicitly the foundation of the whole book.

Multidisciplinary attempts to understand the etiology of breast cancer are expanding to increasingly include new potential markers of disease risk.

Those efforts may have maximal scientific and practical influence if new findings are placed in context of the well-understood lifestyle and reproductive risk factors or existing risk prediction models for breast by:.
