Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the UK; there are approximately 45,000 new cases every year. A new diagnosis can be very frightening and many people will have no prior knowledge of the disease. This book is for women and their families who are looking for a comprehensive but plain language guide to breast cancer and its treatments. Starting with the basics, this guide will look at what breast cancer is and how its diagnosed, right through to support options, the treatment available and how to care for your carers. The emotional after-effects of being a survivor are also covered in detail. Written by a survivor of breast cancer, this book will provide everything you need to know about breast care, being diagnosed with breast cancer and the road to recovery. Breast Cancer - The Essential Guide also includes a foreword by Lorraine Sers and Anne Saunders, Macmillan breast nurse specialists.
