Library Journal Review
Every woman should read this book before going for a mammogram. Written by two radiologists, it explains different tests and recommendations for screening and offers guidance on the various imaging options available. It also describes the medical personnel involved in the procedure and what happens behind the scenes. The pros and cons of screening are outlined, but given that breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy in women and the second leading cause of cancer deaths, this kind of preventative treatment is essential. VERDICT This commonsense guide should help make the screening process less intimidating and assist those with concerns of overdiagnosis and overtreatment. © Copyright 2017.
