Breast Cancer

By (author) Saunders, Christobel; By (author) Jassal, Sunil

Breast Cancer: The Facts is a concise and accessible guide to breast cancer for patients and their families, general health practitioners, nurses and medical and allied health students. For those newly diagnosed with breast cancer, this book will provide essential background information on the disease and will assist them in negotiating the often convoluted and obscure path through treatment. With this knowledge, people affected by breast cancer, and their families, will be able to ask health care teams the questions in order to make informed decisions about treatment. This publication covers all aspects of the diagnosis and management of breast cancer, focusing on the patient journey, but also includes information on women at high risk, menopause and fertility after treatment, breast cancer associated with pregnancy, the role of clinical research, and the psychosocial aspects of diagnosis and survivorship. The clear layout of the book enables readers to focus on chapters or topic areas relevant to their specific concerns. The authors have also provided the details of additional resources which can further inform the reader. Although written by two specialists in breast cancer, the focus on the whole patient, their family and social networks, and the role of other professionals such as the general practitioner, transforms the book from a textbook on breast cancer to a holistic guide to better health at and after diagnosis with the disease.
