Summary
Dr. Lerner gave a history of the treatment of breast cancer in the United States during the 20th century. He showed how this treatment was influenced by social and cultural factors. Through mid-century male doctors primarily took the approach of more surgery is better, and performed numerous radical mastectomies.
