Understanding Breast Cancer
Understanding Illness & Health
Author: Joy Ogden
Two decades ago, a diagnosis of breast cancer meant only one thing: mastectomy. A revolution in
treatment has given those now afflicted a choice of treatment options far beyond this draconian cure-all.
Written by a noted health journalist and former patient, Understanding Breast Cancer offers reliable, up-
to-date information on today's most effective treatments. With insights and advice from breast cancer
patients who experienced different diagnoses and levels of treatment, Joy Ogden candidly shows how an
informed and proactive approach can turn a cancer patient into one of a legion of cancer survivors.
