Over the last several years, enormous controversy has erupted over the usual ways we detect and treat breast cancer. What is the current state of scientific understanding about this common disease? Dr. Susan Love, author of the enormously popular Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book, describes when mammograms are most helpful and why people have been arguing about them. She also discusses what is now known about the nature of breast cancer and shares her personal story as a cancer (leukemia) survivor. How can women help science learn about preventing breast cancer in the first place?
