It is important that students, adults, and professionals alike possess a thorough understanding of this all-too-common disease.

Appendixes offer listings of organizations and associations, sources for further reading, and additional useful information to help breast cancer patients and those close to them gain a broader understanding of the disease. This title also features a foreword by a qualified oncologist/expert coauthor to help introduce this topic to the reader in an informative and helpful manner.

  • Contraception use and risk of breast cancer
