Book News
Whether survivable or deadly, this disease affects the millions including those who have it and those who care for them. Here Brown, the director of health and cultural affairs for a health company, and practitioner Boatman, a clinical program director for the same company, answer basic questions about what breast cancer is and what it does. They describe risk factors, prevention, diagnosis, and treatments, including surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and other techniques. They also describe methods of coping with side effects, physical and emotional changes, the impact on family life and sexual intimacy, and changes in fertility. They include lists of web sites, organizations and literature for patients and families. It is likely that those coping with the physical and emotional turmoil of breast cancer will find at least one question here that they have been afraid to ask professionals.
