Women all over the country and the doctors and nurses who care for them have established Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book as the standard reference on its subject. Dr. Love has now revised her book to reflect every new development in breast care, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and research. Every chapter has been brought up to date, including new information on silicone implants, imaging techniques, genetics, risk factors and prevention, hormone use, bone marrow transplants, tamoxifen, immediate reconstruction, and treatment for metastic breast cancer.

Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book has been considered the bible of breast-care books since it appeared in 1990. In 1995, Love completely updated the book in a 600-page second edition, including new biopsy and screening methods, implants, the pros and cons of hormone therapy, new discoveries in breast-cancer treatment, and many other topics. Every chapter has been rewritten, with the exception of the anatomy chapter ("The breast, I'm glad to report, is still located on the chest!"). Love presents copious medical information in a simple, welcoming style, and plentiful illustrations make the information even clearer. About two-thirds of the book deals with breast cancer: risk factors, prevention, screening, diagnosis, staging, emotions, treatment options, surgery, alternative treatments, clinical trials, and more. But the book isn't just about breast cancer. It's also about breast development, physiology, bras, nursing, sexuality--if it has to do with breasts, Love discusses it. Love also debunks breast myths: underwire bras do not cause cancer, neither do bruises or injuries; "fibrocystic disease" isn't really a disease. The book includes a wealth of resources: books, treatment centers, and organizations (but no Web sites--perhaps in the third edition?). --Joan PriceAbout the Author:
