Summary and Info
Breast cancer in women is the subject of in-depth media attention. Newspapers, journal and magazine articles, and newscasts regularly present the latest breakthroughs--often without distinguishing between solid research and dubious speculation. This title in Omnigraphics' Health Reference Series sorts through the confusion to provide reliable, current information on breast cancer and its associated disorders in both women and men. With stress on early detection through mammography and self-examination, research has shown that breast cancer can be eliminated or controlled through a variety of treatment options, each of which is presented in depth in this volume. Other subjects, including facts about heredity and other risk factors, preventive measures, coping issues, a glossary of terms, and a rich list of sources for further information, are also presented.
