Minimally Invasive Surgery in Breast Pathology
Carcinoma of the breast is one of the most common malignant neoplasms in women in the United States (Table 26.1). It is estimated that one out of every nine women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. The incidence of breast cancer has been rising steadily over the past decade. It is exceeded only by lung cancer today as a cause of cancer death in women. In the 1990s, more than 1.5 million women will be diagnosed as having breast cancer, and nearly 30% of these women will finally die from this disease.
