With a rare dual perspective as both male gynecologist and breast cancer patient, this startling discovery leads Alan on an unusual journey through his own mastectomy, chemotherapy, mammograms, and hot flashes – an experience both challenging and humorous that forces him to reexamine his profession from his patients’ perspective. With a keen eye for professional detail, a playful sense ofhumor, and many atypical insights, Alan goes through events that molds invaluable lessons in empathy and medicine that cancer had in store.
