Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book
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, and many other topics. Every chapter has been rewritten, with exception of the anatomy chapter. 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. Love also debunks breast myths: underwire bras do not cause cancer, neither do bruises or injuries. The book includes a wealth of resources: books, treatment centers, and organizations.
