A straightforward guide to quality long-term care of the breast cancer patient, perfect for any health care professional!

As the number of patients diagnosed with and surviving breast cancer increases, health care professionals must focus more on the newly diagnosed and have less time to devote to patients who have completed their treatment. It is becoming essential that 'breast cancer survivor doctors and nurses' be trained to fulfill this growing and needed role for patients.

Cancer care specialists, primary care practitioners, gynecologists, and internal medicine physicians all need to be aware of long term side effects of cancer and treatment side-effects They need to know how to monitor for recurrence, watch for other types of related cancers, and help instill confidence in their patient, who now is a breast cancer survivor. This handbook covers all dimensions of breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for the non-specialist and places a special emphasis on the long term survivor.
