Breast Cancer: Carcinogenesis, Cell Growth and Signalling Pathways

This book discusses various aspects of breast cancer carcinogenesis from clinics to its hormone-based as well as genetic-based etiologies for this deadly cancer. The book will contribute to the development of novel diagnostic as well as therapeutic approaches.
