I thought I knew everything about breast cancer.
I was wrong.
Despite being a breast surgeon, I still bought ten books when I was diagnosed myself. Although my medical team told me what would happen to me, it was other patients who told me how to cope. I realised how much more I could do to help patients in the future.
I co-wrote The Complete Guide to Breast Cancer: How to Feel Empowered and Take Control with Professor Trisha Greenhalgh, another doctor and breast cancer patient, to help patients and their families as they go through treatment.
