Cell biology is a sub-discipline of Oncology. Cell Biology has been the topic of many books and many research papers and books since the late nineteen fifties and has since become a more important field of study. But do not think that Cell Biology is entirely a Cancer area, it is just one of the many branches of Oncology.
Cancer of the Breast includes the three main Cancer subtypes which are cancer of the breast, breast cancer of the ovary. A Cancer Dictionary is written in an alphabetical manner for ease of reference, but all Cancer specific terms are listed in a separate page for each subtype. The definitions are not as common as a generic definition, but if you see two terms used interchangeably, then that means they may be the same concept. They could also be related, but the Cancer dictionary is the best place to find them.
The first in the series, is called the Breast Cancer: A Book Deals With This Disease and Its Treatments. It was published in 1983 by James P. Brady and Margo A.H. Treviño, M.D. It is now considered the best, most authoritative guide to the topic. In this book, Dr. Brady and Dr. Treviño summarize the current understanding of the nature of the disease and how it affects various areas of the body. They summarize the known methods of treating the disease and also explain how a variety of experimental methods may be used. They go into depth about the alternative treatments being used at present, and lay out the historical history of the disease and of the treatments available today.

The fourth Cancer Dictionary, Breast Cancer: An Information Book for Patients and Family is very similar to the earlier book, and as such is a good starting point for those who are just getting started with Breast Cancer. One new addition is the introduction to the Cancer Research Center, a five hundred square foot facility located at the University of Iowa. This center, supported by a study grant from the National Cancer Institute, serves as the chief site for research and patient care. It is staffed with about forty professionals specializing in different aspects of Breast Cancer.
