From Both Ends Of The Stethoscope
Getting through breast cancer – by a doctor who knows
By Dr. Kathleen Thompson
A doctor describes her breast cancer journey. She explains diagnosis and treatment, research and how to protect ourselves from cancer.
We forget, perhaps, that doctors can also become patients. Dr. Kathleen Thompson suspected something was wrong. She hesitated – surely not her? Finally, and reluctantly, she sought a diagnosis. It was indeed breast cancer.
Kathleen looks back on her cancer with honesty, humour and compassion, and with the benefit of her medical understanding and knowledge of the system. She uses her experience to guide the reader through diagnosis and treatment, both when things go smoothly, and when they don’t.
She 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.
