Description - The Breast Cancer Book by Ruth H. Grobstein
A diagnosis of breast cancer is among the most frightening moments in a person's life, so frightening that even to formulate questions for the doctor may seem impossible. This helpful book is written as a guide for women and men facing breast cancer and for their caring families and friends. It is also written for women who have not been diagnosed with breast cancer but are concerned that they may be. Drawing on her many years of experience with breast cancer patients, Dr. Ruth Grobstein provides exactly the information they want and need in order to make the best health decisions. Her jargon-free book deals with general issues of interest to all women - mammography, hormone replacement therapy, risk factors for breast cancer, and more - as well as the numerous issues that patients diagnosed with breast cancer confront. Her book will be an indispensable companion, providing reliable information for patients on the journey through a sometimes confusing and impersonal medical system.
Features of the book: The most up-to-date information on diagnosis and treatment options, endorsed by top medical experts; Decision trees that lead the way toward sound decisions; An explanation of treatment teams and the roles of their members; Organization that allows the reader to dip into the book at any point; Helpful answers to all the essential questions about breast cancer
