Using his now familiar image of a garden and a personal, plain English style, renowned breast cancer specialist Professor John Boyages MD, PhD, walks you slowly through the stress and confusion of diagnosis, treatment, and life after DCIS of the breast. Your whole life stops after a diagnosis of DCIS. The condition is extremely confusing. Treatment advice varies and there is a danger of both undertreatment and overtreatment. One doctor recommends a lumpectomy and radiation and another recommends a mastectomy. One tells you it's a cancer and the other tells you it's not cancer. In "DCIS of the Breast: Taking Control," John Boyages provides you with all the information you, your family, and your friends need to take control, understand what DCIS is, and how to best treat this condition. Learn how to identify the twenty control points, and about the important decisions you must make to navigate the medical maze and take control if DCIS or cancer returns.
