"This is a very good introduction of breast disease for the beginning student of medicine. It could easily be digested during a rotation on the breast service without overloading the initial student with esoteric information. The highlights are the prolific use of pictures helping to bridge the gap of the assumed reader's limited clinic experience. The section of surgical treatment is a good mini atlas for the student about to observe the operative treatment." Doody's Review Service "...Common Breast Lesions is a welcome addition to currently available textbooks in breast diseases, given its simplicity and high quality. It will provide medical students and residents with a useful tool for the multidisciplinary approach to breast lesions." Oncology
