Are there other methods/tests to detect breast cancer?
How do I perform a breast exam? What else can I do to maintain long-term breast health?
Can the cancer-fighting agents found in common fruits and vegetables really help me?
What are the benefits--and risks--of various breast cancer treatment options involving surgery, radiation, and medication?
Where can I find on-line cancer forums and support groups?
What's the truth about the newly discovered breast cancer genes?

For years Lauersen and Stukane have urged women to listen to their bodies and become partners in their own health care. The Complete Book of Breast Care is the resource you can turn to before and after a problem occurs, to gain confidence in your body and to recognize the route to your own best health.

"Splendid...A very well-crafted resource...There are loads of useful information on surgical options to help decision-making and an excellent section, seldom seen elsewhere, on tapping the vast amount of breast cancer information available in cyberspace."
