              Breast Cancer Facts, Myths,
            and Controversies

            Understanding Current Screenings and Treatments

                      MADELON L. FINKEL
              A diagnosis of breast cancer is one of the most emotionally charged statements a woman
            can hear from her doctor. Understanding the rapid changes in breast cancer diagnosis and
            treatment is challenging, especially for those without a medical background. This book
            will help explain the strengths and weaknesses of breast cancer screening, breast cancer
            treatment, and ways of coping with the disease (for oneself or a loved one).
