Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Originally scheduled for a late 2009 release, this title appears now in a pocket-sized edition of "just the facts." The content is divided among major sections—"Your Breast Cancer," "Risk Factors and Causes," "Prevention and Detection"—then subdivided and subdivided again for the most specific data readers need. Includes the latest studies on drug therapy and treatment. The American Cancer Society still recommends women undergo annual mammograms beginning at age 40. With a useful glossary.
