Breast Cancer : The Complete Guide
This ground-breaking volume is the one indispensable handbook women need as they join with their doctors in their fight against breast cancer. Such dramatic progress has been made in the treatment of the disease that this diagnosis is no longer cause for despair. Breast cancer is now being treated with far more success than was the case only a few years ago and without the devastation of women's lives that used to be the norm.Today's better understanding of breast cancer is accompanied by many more choices about surgical treatment and follow-up therapy. If women are to be active participants in these often complex treatment decisions, they must have the most accurate information currently available and help in sorting out the frequently confusing news reports they encounter almost weekly. This comprehensive guide by two noted specialists provides the kind of explicit content women need in order to collaborate in informed decisions about the care that is right for them.Richly supplemented with the personal experiences of women who have survived breast cancer, this book covers virtually every concern and question women facing breast cancer might have and is a powerful weapon in their battle against the disease.
