Breast Cancer

What is breast cancer? a malignant disease of breast tissue. Initial symptoms, found in most cases by self-examination, include a small painless lump, thick or dimpled skin, or nipple retraction. Surgical treatment may be a lumpectomy or mastectomy, with removal of some or all of the lymph nodes in the arm pit. Radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or both, are often prescribed.

Here are a few titles on this topic you will find in the Junior Board Cancer Resource Library.
