Overview

Breast Cancer: The Facts is a concise and accessible guide to breast cancer for patients and their families, general health practitioners, nurses and medical and allied health students.

For those newly diagnosed with breast cancer, this book will provide essential background information on the disease and will assist them in negotiating the often convoluted and obscure path through treatment. With this knowledge, people affected by breast cancer, and their families, will be able to ask health care teams the questions in order to make informed decisions about treatment.

This publication covers all aspects of the diagnosis and management of breast cancer, focusing on the patient journey, but also includes information on women at high risk, menopause and fertility after treatment, breast cancer associated with pregnancy, the role of clinical research, and the psychosocial aspects of diagnosis and survivorship.
