Breast Cancer Basics and Beyond by Delthia Ricks

Book Description

From award-winning medical writer, Delthia Ricks, comes a comprehensive breast cancer book for women and professionals seeking the latest information. Integrating testimony from patients and the top breast cancer specialists nationwide, Ricks explains: the tests and different types of diagnosis, lumpectomy vs. mastectomy when it comes to surgery, the latest cancer treatments, breast reconstruction and the dangers of recurrence. In terms of psychological support, she, also, discusses building a support team and follow-up care after the cancer has been treated. Finally, there are reasons to hope: the bright future of breast cancer research and the treatments that are in development and the positive stories of long-term survivors. This unique guide addresses current issues, including the emerging links between breast cancer and obesity, HRT, environment and genetics, and debunks misleading myths about causes of and preventive measures against breast cancer. From diagnosis to recovery, this book provides patients with the necessary information to understand and deal with the complexities of breast cancer.
