Radiation appears to help women that have been diagnosed with early stage, noninvasive breast cancer, researchers reported on Thursday. In a study of four randomized trials consisting of 3,925 women, researchers compared the results of women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) who had received radiation as a part of their treatment with those who had not received radiation. Therapy that includes radiation appears to noticeably lower the risk of recurrence of either DCIS or invasive breast...

One out of 5 older women may delay or not finish treatment following breast cancer surgery, U.S. researchers said. The analysis of the National Cancer Institute's cancer registry, published in the journal Cancer, also shows this suboptimal care can lead to worse outcomes. Dr. Heather Taffet Gold of Weill Cornell Medical College in New York and colleagues said that among a nationally representative sample of nearly 8,000 breast cancer registry patients age 65 and older, almost 1,300 women...

By Sue Carroll DESPITE collapsing three weeks ago, and undergoing four tests to examine pre-cancerous cells, Jade Goody was given the all-clear by medics. Now it transpires she has a large cancerous tumour in her womb and the disease may have spread. She faces a hysterectomy, radiotherapy and chemotherapy and fears she may not live to see her two sons grow up. In an unprecedented move, the Harley Street consultant treating Jade has confirmed her patient's condition is severe....

By Cangiarella, Joan Guth, Amber; Axelrod, Deborah; Darvishian, Farbod; Singh, Baljit; Simsir, Aylin; Roses, Daniel; Mercado, Cecilia * Context.-Both atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) have traditionally been considered to be risk factors for the development of invasive carcinoma and are followed by close observation. Recent studies have suggested that these lesions may represent true precursors with progression to invasive carcinoma. Due to the debate...

By ED SUSMAN Doctors said Monday that treating certain breast-cancer patients with surgery alone -- or without standard courses of radiation -- resulted in a low 6-percent risk of the cancer returning within five years. For some women, that level of risk may be acceptable, Lorie Hughes, clinical associate professor of medicine at Emory University in Atlanta, told United Press International. However, Hughes said that going without radiation is certainly not for everyone. "We know that...

LONDON -- A booster dose of radiotherapy may help stop young women with very early breast cancer from progressing to a more serious form of the disease, researchers said on Thursday. Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a pre-cancer that occurs in cells lining the breast milk ducts. It is contained within the ducts and has not yet spread to the surrounding breast tissue. Surgery is usually performed to remove the cells and stop the cancer returning. If the DCIS is extensive, a mastectomy may be...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Adolescents girls with abnormal screening Pap test results should be treated less aggressively than adult women, a committee of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends in a report published this month in the college's journal, Obstetrics and Gynecology. In many cases, the authors write, monitoring is more appropriate than more invasive treatment given that early cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) -- a type of...

By David Douglas NEW YORK -- An olive-oil based herbal extract preparation called Zyflamend suppresses the growth of prostate cancer cells and induces prostate cancer cells to self-destruct, according to a new study. Zyflamend has the ability, in culture at least, to reduce prostate cancer cell growth by as much as 78 percent and induce cancer cell death or "apoptosis," scientists report in the journal Nutrition and Cancer. "Together, these results suggest that Zyflamend might have some...

New research suggests that there is a direct relationship between the density of breast tissue, and the risk of developing tumours in dense areas of the breast. The results of the study, published today in the Open Access journal Breast Cancer Research, strongly suggest that some aspects of dense breast tissue directly influence tumour development in breast tissue. Mammographically dense tissue "“ areas of the breast consisting of glands, milk ducts and fibrous tissue "“ has...
