All you need to know to “take control” after a diagnosis of DCIS of the breast. 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. Treatment can be extremely confusing. Advice varies and there is a danger of both under-treatment and over-treatment. One doctor recommends a lumpectomy and radiation and the other a mastectomy. One tells you it’s a cancer and the other it’s not cancer. One recommends tamoxifen and the other doesn’t. One does a sentinel node biopsy on everyone and the other is selective. In DCIS of the Breast: Taking Control, John Boyages provides you with not only his personal experience in treating DCIS but also underpins this with all the latest clinical trials.
