Kirby I. Bland, Edward M. Copeland, Vicki Klimberg

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter provides the reader with an overview of the key milestones in the development of the current understanding and management of breast cancer. Although the milestones listed here are important ones, the list is by no means comprehensive. The historical evolution of breast cancer treatment begins with the ancient civilizations, moves through the Middle Ages, and the 18th and 19th centuries and broadly covers the advent of breast reconstruction, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and advances in cancer biology during the 20th century through current therapies.
