Breast Cancer Q & A

Insightful Answers to Your Most Frequently Asked Questions

By Pfeuffer, Karen

Publishers Summary:
Women who are diagnosed with breast cancer face a frightening and confusing time, as they must confront looming concerns such as understanding the physiology of their disease, treatment options, and the choices that can increase their chances of survival. Too often, however, patients are not adequately educated about breast cancer, leaving them with countless questions regarding their health and medical care. This edifying and reassuring guide ends the uncertainty by answering the one hundred most frequently asked questions by breast cancer patients, and includes sections on medical terminology, support groups and resource centers, cancer medication, and alternative medicine. Charyn Pfeuffer's experience as a breast cancer researcher and volunteer put her on the front lines with thousands of women urgently seeking advice and support. To further respond to the most pressing needs of newly diagnosed women, Pfeuffer has consulted with both alternative and traditional health-care practitioners to lead patients from detection to treatment. Pfeuffer provides a starting point for women to navigate through the myriad options and resources available for support and treatment of breast cancer.
