Synopsis:
Breast Cancer: The Facts provides essential, easy to follow information on all aspects of the diagnosis and management of breast cancer. It provides essential background information on the disease, from the ways breast problems are investigated, through treatment options and new therapies, to follow-up processes after remission.

Fully updated to cover new and emerging therapies in breast cancer, this second edition also features new chapters on treating special or unusual types of breast cancer; surviving and thriving post-treatment; and coping and support strategies for the partners, families, friends, and colleagues of the person diagnosed with breast cancer. Each chapter is enriched with resources such as websites, links to videos, and care plans so the reader can explore relevant topics in greater detail.

Written by specialists in breast cancer, the focus is on the whole patient, their family, and social networks, to make this book a holistic guide to better health at and after diagnosis with the disease, equipping patients affected by breast cancer and their families to be able to ask their health care team the questions they need to have answered to make informed decisions about their treatment.
