New American Cancer Society Breast Cancer Book Offers Newly Diagnosed Hope

Breast cancer remains the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women. This year, invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in about 246,660 women. An additional 61,000 new cases of in situ breast cancer will be diagnosed. Survival rates are generally higher for women with earlier-stage cancers.

The American Cancer Society has announced the publication of Breast Cancer Clear & 9781604432367 (1)Simple, Second Edition: All Your Questions Answered, an engaging, question-and-answer book written to help newly diagnosed patients quickly digest the crucial information needed to navigate through their breast cancer experience. (Breast Cancer Clear & Simple, Second Edition: All Your Questions Answered is available in both print and eBook formats.)

Breast Cancer Clear & Simple was written to help women with breast cancer and their caregivers know what to expect, what to do, and how to get through what can be an overwhelming, life-changing experience. Professional illustrations throughout the book can help patients understand how breast cancer starts in the body, facts about breast anatomy, the lymph system, and the types of breast reconstruction available.

When women are diagnosed with breast cancer, they have a lot to think about and a seemingly endless amount of decisions to make. This book supports them by providing a comprehensive and easy-to-understand format to help them navigate through their diagnosis and treatment options, especially during those first days and months,” said Dr. Richard Wender, chief cancer control officer, American Cancer Society.

Written by medical experts from the American Cancer Society, with guidance from breast cancer survivors, this evidence-based book is a great resource for any breast cancer patient.
