Susan M. Love MD, Karen Lindsey – Dr. Susan Loves Breast Book, Fifth Edition

Dr. Susan Loves Breast Book has long been the bible for the newly diagnosed. In this completely revised fifth edition, it also becomes a guide for those at risk of getting breast cancer, survivors interested in the consequences of their treatment, and anyone who wants to understand the new research about how the local environment influences the manifestations and treatments of many different kinds of breast cancer. Major advances being made in genetic research today mean that prevention and treatment can work not only to get rid of mutated cells (through chemotherapy or surgery) but also to change the environment around the cells (through hormone therapy, exercise, and stress reduction). Among other promising developments discussed are advances in imaging, recognition of breast density as a risk factor, and a section focused on personalized medicine to help determine what kind of cancer you have and how best to treat it.

Any woman facing a diagnosis, decisions about treatment, or concerns about prevention will find in Dr. Loves book the information, guidance, and reassurance she needs.

Dr. Susan Loves Breast Book. This had a wealth of information and explained the various types of breast cancers and treatment plans. She really breaks down everything in easy to understand language. She also continues to do research and to review studies all over the world. She includes that information with each new edition. This book was immensely helpful to get a crash course in breast cancer, our anatomy, how to treat it, how to self-advocate, and how to access supportive community resources. Seriously, I cannot recommend this book enough to individuals diagnosed with breast cancer (women and men) and I am truly grateful to her for her work and continuous research efforts in this filed.
