This is a comprehensive book on the diseases of the breast, written in the light of newer knowledge of structure, function and method. It is based to a large extent on observations and experiments of the author himself. The topics of the first part are the development and physiology of the breast, and methods of diagnosis of mammary diseases. Then is described the breast in pregnancy and lactation with special reference to their influence on mammary lesions, particularly carcinoma and mastitis. Chronic cystic mastitis and noncancerous mammary tumors are discussed in the third and fourth parts respectively.
