Dr. Harness recommends books and Web sites to women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Dr. Harness, M.D.:
My friend and breast surgeon colleague Dr. Susan Love has had a book out for many years. I believe there’s a second edition of that book. There are others. I would do a good Web search. Susan’s is the one I am the most familiar with. There are other physicians who have written other books. Sitting here just sort of off the top of my head, there are probably at least half a dozen books out there.
I would go to places like Google, Barnes & Noble if they still exist any longer, you know, any of the other bookstore sites, and do a search. You want to never forget the American Cancer Society who has good literature on breast cancer, and not a book but one of the websites that, besides EmpowHer, that I want to recommend that people go to, is breastcancer.org. And then the National Cancer Institute has a good site called cancer.gov, and the website for the American Cancer Society is cancer.org.
