:FRIDAY, Oct. 9, 2015 (HealthDay News)—American women with an early, noninvasive stage of breast cancer are increasingly opting for less extensive surgery, a new study says. Women Choosing Less Aggressive Treatment for Early Breast Cancer | HealthyWomen. In general, less aggressive treatment became more common during the study period.
Rates of single breast removal (mastectomy) fell from about 45 percent to 19 percent, while rates of lumpectomyand. In the past, most women who’d been diagnosed with breast cancer had been advised to have aggressive chemotherapy in addition to surgery, radiation and hormonal therapies, but. Adjuvant chemotherapy clearly improves survival for women with early-stage breast cancer. 1 Women age 50 to 69 years with breast cancer will achieve a 20% proportional reduction in the risk of recurrence and an 11% proportional reduction in the risk of death if they receive adjuvant polychemotherapy.
1 However, there are limited data on the benefit of chemotherapy in women age 70 years or older. Survival for these women isn’t higher than it is for women choosing less aggressive options like lumpectomy. Also called breast-conserving surgery, only a portion of the affected breast.
Women with advanced breast cancer may be a step closer to an NHS blood test that tells them which personalised treatment they need.. There are around 35,000 women in the UK with advanced breast. That means women usually require less aggressive treatment and, as a group, have a better prognosis and lower risk of recurrence. “Most postmenopausal women are likely to derive the effects they need from antiestrogen therapy,” says Weiss. These drugs, usually taken once a day, prevent cancer cells from being stimulated by estrogen. As the point of first contact for breast cancer patients, surgeons have a tremendous influence on how patients choose treatment options.
Which is why Shumway thinks they could play a crucial role in counseling older women about options for less aggressive therapy. Unfortunately, women over 65 who are diagnosed with early onset breast cancer are more likely to pass away due to the disease. Women in that same age group are more likely to have the cancer recur, as well. More than 40,000 women die from breast cancer every year.
Most breast cancers in older women are low-grade, less aggressive “early” cancers; and in most cases, breast conservation surgery (lumpectomy) is.
