Understanding and Self-Examination of Breast Cancer

In 2016, according to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancer, and is still the second leading cause of cancer death in women. This recording, based on lectures written by Dr. H.E. Ulrich, a biochemist and former lecturer at University Medical in Rochester, NY, was released by Folkways Records in 1975 as an effort to communicate information on breast cancer and breast self-examination in language the general public could understand. The recording is issued only for historical purposes. Listeners should consult medical professionals regarding questions about current breast cancer treatments and therapies.
