The etiology of human breast cancer is unknown; accepted risk factors, e.g., menstrual, reproductive, and family histories, are implicated in less than half of all cases. Various halogenated hydrocarbons--acting as either co-carcinogens or promoting agents--which are derived from the environment and are concentrated in human fatty stores, may also play a(More)

Results of physical examination may be misleading, especially if movements that(More)

PURPOSE The National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) initiated a randomized trial (B-22) to determine if intensifying but maintaining the total dose of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan, Bristol-Myers Squibb Oncology, Princeton, NJ) in a doxorubicin (Adriamycin, Pharmacia, Kalamazoo, MI)-cyclophosphamide combination (AC), or if intensifying and(More)
The histogenesis of Paget's disease has been hotly debated, and only recently has epidermotropic theory become widely accepted. With the evolution of our understanding of breast cancer, it became apparent that the prognosis of Paget's disease was more a reflection of that of the underlying carcinoma, be it intraductal or infiltrating. The standard treatment(More)
