A comprehensive, down-to-earth guide for anyone diagnosed with breast cancer.

A Trusted Guide for You and Your Loved Ones

By: Kenneth D. Miller, MD, and Melissa Camp, MD, MPH, with Kathy Steligo

While life-saving breast cancer treatments and medical advances have increased the likelihood for survival and a long, happy life for many, diagnoses in women are still rising at an average rate 0.5% per year. This means that more and more women will need to be equipped with the knowledge to assess risk and understand their diagnoses and possible treatment options. It’s the reason why a team of Johns Hopkins University Press experts teamed up to publish The Breast Cancer Book.

Written by an oncologist (Dr. Kenneth Miller), a breast surgeon (Dr. Melissa Camp), and a two-time breast cancer survivor (Kathy Steligo), The Breast Cancer Book walks readers through everything readers need to know about breast cancer so that they can make the best decisions about diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care. As the most up-to-date and detailed (456 pages) consumer health title of its kind to hit the market in years, The Breast Cancer Book (available Sept. 28), crash course on breast cancer that will help get you or anyone you love through the physical and emotional challenges of the disease, The Breast Cancer Book will also help readers communicate with their cancer team.
