The updated edition of the essential resource for the 250,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer each year

Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women from thirty-five to fifty-four years of age, and few things are as terrifying and confusing as a diagnosis of this disease. The fifth edition of The Breast Cancer Survival Manual is a concise, information-packed guide that is newly revised to contain all of the latest findings to help the woman facing treatment feel informed and empowered. John Link, M.D., a pioneer developer of Breastlink Medical Group in Southern California includes the most current medical advice on

     • Tamoxifen, Herceptin, and other chemotherapy options

     • The growing importance of HER2 oncogene testing

     • Clinical research trials under way that could broaden treatment options

     • The role of preventive drugs and prophylactic mastectomy for those with high genetic risk

     • Sentinel lymph node sampling, a method of local control soon to become standard

Of course, all of the basic information included in the previous editions—the nature and biology of breast cancer, choosing a treatment team, managing side effects, and optimizing medication—are here as well, making this the best book of its kind on the market.
