Review:

"Miller, an oncologist and director of the Yale Cancer Center Survivorship Program, presents a unique and indispensable book for women facing breast cancer, which features individual chapters written by medical experts and breast cancer survivors. Asserting that 'knowledgeable people make different choices, for different reasons,' Miller's overarching message is that each woman is unique, as is her experience with this life-threatening disease. Because there are so many potential scenarios — based upon the tumor's size, the stage of cancer, etc. — treatment options vary, and women must decide which route to take in a timely fashion while simultaneously confronting their fears. Miller's approach provides the reader with the sense that she's had a private and unhurried consultation with each specialist: medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons. In addition the book includes personal accounts of survivors who have faced an array of experiences, from the woman whose mammogram reveals a lump just weeks before her wedding to the breast cancer statistician who is diagnosed with the very disease she is studying. This collection will help to fortify women making tough choices, offering invaluable information along with hope." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Book News Annotation:

As a medical oncologist and husband of a cancer survivor, Dr. Miller (Yale Cancer Center) believes that "every woman with breast cancer is unique." He offers a guide to screening/treatment options for women at risk for or diagnosed with breast cancer that includes perspectives from survivors and health professionals who have shared this diagnosis, as well as information from specialists. The book does not list further resources. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A diagnosis of breast cancer can be overwhelming. The disease is frightening and the medical landscape confusing. In the wake of fear and confusion comes the need to make decisions about treatment. This book provides women with medically reliable and up-to-date information to help them with these decisions.

Within these pages is a team of private consultants — including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiologists, plastic surgeons, and women who have faced breast cancer — each of whom offers sound advice and valuable insight. In addition to describing surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and breast reconstruction, the medical experts clarify choices and offer support, while breast cancer survivors tell their own stories of pain, perseverance, and triumph.

Choices in Breast Cancer Treatment is a rare blend of medical expertise and compelling personal accounts that empowers those with breast cancer to meet the disease with confidence, knowledge, and hope.
