Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Is the First Book the 250,000 women each year who are diagnosed with breast cancer will buy to help them make informed, intelligent choices on the course of treatment that lies ahead. Dr. Link provides authoritative, hard-hitting medical advice on:
-- whether mastectomy or breast conservation and radiation is the right choice
-- when the systematic spread is sufficient to justify chemotherapy
-- getting a second opinion without offending treating doctors
-- how to interpret a pathology report
-- weighing risk factors
-- managing side effects
-- optimizing diet and medication
-- using nonconventional treatment methods such as herbs and the mind/body connection
-- how to get the best overall care from healthcare providers

Written by one of the foremost breast cancer experts in the country, this guide provides the most up-to-date information available on the disease and its treatment, and is a must-have for all women recently diagnosed.

About the Author
