The landscape of breast cancer has changed. New, non-invasive diagnostic techniques, new knowledge about prevention, new genetics, new treatments, new alternative and complementary resources are beginning to turn breast cancer into a chronic and perhaps preventable disease. Dr. Susan Love, whose earlier work has won the trust of women all over this country and abroad, has entirely revised her indispensable guide to reflect the very latest information. Readers of Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book will learn of the recent breakthroughs in genetic research, of Dr. Love's own work in developing a less invasive and highly accurate diagnostic technique, of the latest studies into preventive measures such as tamoxifen and dietary strategies, and of promising outcomes from new treatments for metastatic cancer. In the same warm, supportive, and often delightfully candid tone that has brought confidence to millions of women, Dr. Love helps each reader plan her own path through diagnosis, treatment options, and the changing world of HMO's and insurance. She also offers sound advice about combining alternative self-care with topnotch medical help.

Are you doing everything you can to make sure your breasts are healthy? If this question gives you pause, you’re not alone. Confusing media and conflicting advice surrounding breast health can make it challenging to know what’s best. In the United States this year, more than 40,000 women will die from breast cancer. Dr. John G. West wants to help you avoid becoming part of that statistic through preventative methods and screenings. And for women who are diagnosed, Dr. West provides guidance and wisdom to make the best possible treatment decisions. For nearly 20 years, Dr. West has focused on giving his patients the best care possible when they show up for diagnosis or treatment. The question he gets most often from his patients is: “What would you tell me if I were your wife or daughter?” Prevent, Survive, Thrive: Every Woman’s Guide to Optimal Breast Care is the answer. Drawing from the latest scientific findings in the field of breast care, Dr. West outlines the things most women don’t know about screening, like when you should insist on an ultrasound instead of only relying on mammogram results or how to determine if you should get genetic testing—and what it can and cannot tell you about your cancer risk. He lets you know exactly what kind of pain is normal and what should be investigated further. Dr. West even offers lifestyle advice to help lower your risk factors; things as small as how often you exercise or where you carry your cell phone can have an impact on your future health. Prevent, Survive, Thrive provides clear, accurate guidelines for prevention and early detection—letting you take control of your health.

Felicia Knaul, an economist who has lived and worked for two decades in Latin America on health and social development, documents the personal and professional sides of her breast cancer experience. Beauty without the Breast contrasts her difficult but inspiring journey with that of the majority of women throughout the world who face not only the disease but stigma, discrimination, and lack of access to health care. This wrenching contrast is the cancer divide — an equity imperative in global health. Knaul exposes barriers affecting women in low and middle-income countries and highlights the role of men, family, and community in responding to the challenge of breast cancer. She shares striking data about breast cancer, a leading killer of young women in developing countries, and narrates the process of applying this evidence and launching Tómatelo a Pecho (also the book title in Spanish)— a Mexico-based program promoting awareness and access to health care. The book concludes with letters from Dr. Julio Frenk, her husband and former Minister of Health of Mexico, written while they shared the trauma of diagnosis and treatment. With force and lucidity, the book narrates the journey of patient and family as they courageously navigate disease and survivorship.
