This book combines the expertise of a surgeon and an oncologist to present comprehensive information that will help women with breast cancer understand the disease and make informed decisions about their own treatment. The emotions and needs of patients are a priority for the authors. Thirty-three double-page spreads of straightforward text and clear illustrations cover all the questions women are likely to have. Each spread stands alone and can be used by a healthcare professional as an aid in explaining the disease or a procedure, and then photocopied and given to a patient to take home with her.
