Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book has been considered the bible of breast-care books since the first edition was published in 1990. The third edition, released in 2000, is thoroughly revised into a 700 page text.
Women all over the country and the doctors and nurses who care for them have established this book as the standard reference in its field. Dr. Susan Love,
America's best-known authority on women's health, has entirely revised her authoritative guide to reflect the latest, and increasingly optimistic, information about breast care. Readers will learn about recent breakthroughs in genetic research; Dr. Love's own research into a new technique to access the milk ducts, the source of breast cancer cells; the latest studies on preventative measures for breast cancer, such as tamoxifen and dietary strategies; new knowledge concerning risk factors, and promising outcomes of new treatments for metastatic cancer. In the same warm, supportive, and often delightfully candid tone that has brought confidence to millions of women, Dr. Love helps each reader plan her own path through diagnosis, treatment options, and navigating the changing world of HMO's and insurance. She also offers indispensable advice about maintaining quality of life during treatment and how to combine alternative self care with topnotch medical help.
