This book is a study on the experimental investigation of mammary tumors, in which special consideration is given to their objective anatomic pathology and clinical diagnosis. The author starts his discussion with a classification of the mammary tumors. Each pathologic entity is individually presented, and representative photomicrographs, with excellent descriptions, are included in the discussions. Emphasis is given to the management and endocrine therapy of functional mastopathy.
The treatment of mammary cancer is extensively discussed by the author. He presents a statistical review, trying to estimate his skepticism on the surgical treatment of mammary neoplasms, in which it appears that the unsatisfactory results from this form of treatment are too strongly emphasized.
A discussion is included on the prophylactic treatment of carcinoma of the breast, based on the restoration of hormonal balance with the use of thyroid, insulin and ovarian extracts according to the author's experience.
