Looking for good books on cancer.

Interested in a more academic angle, be it from the sciences or the arts. History, medicine, anthropology, whatever. General works preferred, but if we're going to obsess over one breed of cancer, breast would be most appropriate.
I'd like to stay away from anything that relies heavily on cliches or personal experiences. No feel good self-help stuff and no Oprah's Book Club, if you catch my drift.
The goal here is to learn as much as possible about something that's about to consume my home life. It's a big field, but I like knowledge and books, so give me what you've got.
