Saving the Breast in Cancer Surgery

Author: DailyRx

As bad as a breast cancer diagnosis is, the prospect of breast cancer surgery may be nearly as scary for some women. Many women, however, are taking advantage of newer surgery options that save as much of the breast as possible. I'm Shelby Cullinan with your latest health news. A new study found that from 1998 to 2011, rising numbers of women with early-stage breast cancer chose to have breast conservation surgery. However, barriers to treatment — such as distance to travel and socioeconomic status — may still prevent some women from making this choice. In breast conservation surgery, only the tumor and some of the surrounding tissue are removed. After surgery, most women need radiation to ensure that all of the cancer is eliminated, according to the American Cancer Society.

Women who did not have insurance and those with low incomes were less likely to choose breast conservation. Speak to your doctor about the right treatment option for you.
