Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Fall 2005: A common question women ask after getting a breast cancer diagnosis is, "What kind of treatment will I have?" For years the standard treatment was a mastectomy – the surgical removal of the breast. Now women have many options and may be asked by her surgeon to decide between a lumpectomy and a mastectomy. Given the large amounts of conflicting information available, this can be a daunting task. The importance of this book is that it provides women with a reference guide to understanding lumpectomy. The authors cover variations in diagnoses, treatment, adjuvant therapy, and radiation in plain language. Women reading this can then make informed decisions regarding their care.
