Cancers that cause more readily noticeable physical changes can produce self-image challenges for patients. This discussion reviews what interventions can help validate patients' self-image concerns.
Better breast reconstruction outcomes may be one reason behind the trend of increasing mastectomy rates for early-stage breast cancer patients eligible for lumpectomy.
Frozen section analysis during breast cancer lumpectomies spared patients the need for a repeat lumpectomy in about 96% of cases, according to a new study.
When ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS, a preinvasive malignancy of the breast) is described as a high-risk condition rather than cancer, more women report that they would opt for nonsurgical treatments.
Women with stage I or II breast cancer who had breast-conserving therapy plus radiation survived longer than did women undergoing mastectomy.
MALND, en endoscopic technique to determine if breast cancer has spread to the adjoining lymph nodes, can reduce the complications associated with the conventional surgical approach to axillary lymph node dissection.
Most older women with early breast cancer are more likely to avoid mastectomy by following lumpectomy with radiation, contrary to current thinking.
Women with triple negative breast cancer have an increased risk of residual disease after lumpectomy.
Data presented on the evolving role of radiation therapy in local and regional tumor control at the ASCO 2010 Breast Cancer Symposium, October 1-3, 2010, are reviewed.
Breast cancer patients may feel less satisfied with posttreatment breast appearance than doctors predicted, according to a study presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology.
