0 Reviews

Culled from the latest medical research on breast self-examination, Susan Mendelsohn has created a journal for women that encourages them to practice monthly breast self-examination. She explains the limits of mammography and how it is only a component of a women's breast health practice, especially for younger women. Familiarity with one's body is the most important feature of self-care. Journaling and drawing these monthly self-exams not only invites this health ritual, but leaves a trace of information with one's doctors. The book is concisely informative with an excellent bibliography for women who want to read more on women's breast health.

The author writes: "Make this journal your own. Just by bringing it home, you are beginning to take your health and the health of your breasts more seriously."
