The Del Mar Times recently featured a story about Dr. John Link and the new edition of The Breast Cancer Survival Manual. The article also discussed a community event, called Linked by Lynn, hosted by Lynn F. and Agendia, where Dr. John Link spoke about issues in breast cancer treatment. Dr. Link helped develop a breast cancer treatment plan that included a lumpectomy, radiation, axcillary dissection and five years of Tamoxifen. In the article Dr. Link explained why he wanted to focus on breast cancer: ““to do one disease really well and be kind of an expert. You can’t do 35 cancers well.” Dr. Link also noted “breast cancer is no longer a death sentence. The cure rate is 90 percent.”
