Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide, accounting for nearly a quarter of the total new cancer cases each year. Of these cases, approximately 15-25% overexpress HER2, a transmembrane RTK kinase that is associated with aggressive tumor growth and poor outcomes. However, in the past decade, survival rates of patients with HER-positive breast cancer have significantly improved due to increased screening, HER2 testing, and breakthrough HER2-targeted drug therapies. Handbook of HER2-Targeted Agents in Breast Cancer provides oncologists, primary care physicians, trainees and other healthcare providers with a concise, accessible, and up-to-date survey of the field, including a review of our current understanding of the biology of the HER2 pathway and the rationale for targeting it in early-stage and advanced breast cancer, an overview of HER2-testing, and evidence-based discussions of available HER2-targeted regimens in the adjuvant and metastatic settings.

There has been a change in the management of patients with localized cancer from total mastectomy to lumpectomy complemented by adjuvant radiotherapy and chemo-endocrine therapy, without significant outcome. Early detection of small breast carcinoma lesions may further change the attitude toward less invasive and even noninvasive management. A major goal of breast-conserving treatment is the preservation of a cosmetically acceptable breast. Although a variety of patient and treatment factors have been reported to influence the cosmetic result, the amount of resected breast tissue appears to be the major factor. Several investigators are currently studying the feasibility of percutaneous minimally invasive techniques to ablate breast tumors. And several modalities such as cryosurgery, laser ablation, thermoablation, and high-intensity focused ultrasound have been investigated.Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has been demonstrated to be effective for treating tumors in many types of tissue, including liver, bone, brain, kidney, pancreas and prostate tissue.By minimizing damage and disruption to normal surrounding tissue, the morbidity of local treatment such as scarring and deformity can be reduced, and cosmetic results can be potentially improved. With the widespread application of screening mammography, the mean size of the breast tumors which can be detected has continued to decrease, which further emphasize the need for less invasive methods that can deliver local tumor destruction such as RF ablation.This new frontier of surgery without scalpels will require surgeons to improve their radiological expertise and basic understanding of molecular biology.Our phase I / II study was conducted to determine the safety and efficacy of radiofrequency ablation of early breast carcinomas using saline-cooled electrodes. RFA could represent an alternative local treatment to replace breast-conserving surgery for early breast cancer.
