The essential guide to breast cancer ...
A cancer diagnosis can be a lightning bolt.
Life stops, or seems to. Normal routines no longer are.
After the lightning comes the storm.
Too many questions. Appointments. Decisions.
The storm seems to go on and on.
Whether you are facing a cancer diagnosis and the challenges of treatment, or wish to prevent the disease if you're at high risk, this book brings you the most accurate, reliable and up-to-date information available.You'll discover a story rich in hope, with accounts of women who've successfully confronted this difficult disease.
The knowledge you'll gain will help you be a more informed patient — in communicating with your doctor, in selecting among treatment options. In 453 pages of thorough coverage, Mayo brings you critical knowledge in many key facets of breast cancer: prevention, treatment, care and coping , and living with hope. Each chapter has been reviewed by multiple experts at Mayo Clinic, each committed to providing balanced information to help you understand your status, your choices and your future. And because Mayo Clinic cares deeply about every facet of a woman's health, we've added key chapters on ovarian and uterine cancers, both of which are more common in breast cancer survivors.
