About this book


This volume familiarizes readers with what has now become a very specific research endeavor, Geospatial Factors Impacting Breast Cancer. Cancer occurs in specific places and spaces, each of which have identifiable geographic coordinates, characterized by unique natural, built and social characteristics. These factors contribute significantly to cancer across the spectrum, from etiology through diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes. The book provides important insights into this relatively new and rapidly developing field as a wide-ranging introduction to problems in cancer prevention and control for geographers, demographers and other researchers with a geospatial perspective. Experts share important information for all oncologists, endocrinologists, and behavioral modification professionals to better understand their patients in the context of their environment. The book also outlines important considerations for physicians, scientists, public health professionals and disparity investigators planning clinical trials, community interventions, and community planning.
