Breast Cancer Facts

Research and Breast Cancer Treatment

Breast cancer treatment has come a long way in the past 30 years. In 1975, a woman with breast cancer could expect to have a radical mastectomy, meaning surgical removal of the breast, the underlying muscle and the underarm lymph nodes. In recent years, the philosophy of treatment has shifted to breast conservation. Now, most cases of cancer can be treated without a mastectomy, eliminating the disfiguration and accompanying life changes. The strides that have been made in identifying and treating cancer are all for naught, however, if women don't take advantage of new screening technologies that detect cancer early. Staying on top of your breast cancer screenings will help to ensure that the past 30 years of scientific work don't go to waste.
