From both ends of the stethoscope. Getting through breast cancer – by a doctor who knows

From both ends of the stethoscope. Getting through breast cancer – by a doctor who knows (2015)

Whilst dealing with her own breast cancer, Dr Kathleen Thompson recognised the desperate need for a 'going through breast cancer' guide. Her experiences make a fascinating story in themselves, and Kathleen uses them to guide the reader through diagnostic tests and treatment options, what to do when things go wrong, and when mistakes are made. All the while she explains what is happening and why. Recognising that anyone encountering cancer is in a state of shock, she delivers factual information intermingled with her own story, in an easily-digestible, and often amusing format. Each chapter ends with further information sources and a summary. Kathleen looks back on her cancer journey with honesty, humour and compassion, and with the benefit of her medical understanding and knowledge of the system. Later in the book she also explains medical research and how to assess the credibility of the numerous cancer treatment claims, and what we can all do to protect ourselves from cancer. (Publisher)
