Dr. Susan Love's Breast BookBook - 2015
This fully revised sixth edition explains the biology behind the clinical options [for people diagnosed with breast cancer]. Whether a reader is at risk and interested in prevention, diagnosed and trying to prevent recurrence, or living with metastatic cancer and seeking ways to survive longer and better, Dr. Love provides the most expert and reassuring support. This revision discusses the new genetic tests, controversies regarding screening, and what you need to know about dense breasts. Dr. Love also reviews the most recent technologies, such as liquid biopsies (identifying tumor cells in blood), plus current findings on the timing of chemotherapy, male breast cancer, and exciting new immunological therapies, all in her unique explanatory style. In addition, she considers the collateral damage of treatment and explores the newer approaches to metastatic disease.
