Women who receive “false-positive” mammography results may be at higher risk of breast cancer later in life, a new study suggests. The Danish study of more than 58,000 women found that those with mammogram results initially suggesting breast cancer, although none was present, had a 67 percent greater risk of developing breast cancer compared with women with negative mammograms. Screening mammography can sometimes produce false-positive results in disease-free women. ...

Technique should become the new standard of care The use of ultrasound-guided surgery to remove tumors from women who have palpable breast cancer is much more successful than standard surgery in excising all the cancerous tissue while sparing as much healthy tissue as possible, according to the results of a randomized controlled trial. As a consequence, researchers told the eighth European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-8) today (Friday) they expect their findings will change surgical...

Negative surgical margins should be attained for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) patients after breast-conserving surgery (BCS) regardless of radiotherapy, and surgeons should attempt to reach wide negative margins in their first attempt within cosmetic restraint according to a study published March 22 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Margin status is an important predictor of local recurrence regardless of subsequent radiotherapy (RT) for women with DCIS who are treated...

Radiotherapy treatment (RT) after surgery for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) [1] still has a major protective effect against recurrence more than 15 years later, according to the results of an international trial. Researchers found that the use of RT in addition to surgery could reduce the chances of a local recurrence (the cancer coming back in the same breast) by 50%. Results from the trial, which has one of the longest follow-ups of a large group of patients in the world to date, will be...

The finding, presented today (Wednesday) at the eighth European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-8) in Vienna, will add further fuel to the debate about whether or not breast cancer screening does more harm than good. Those who argue against national screening programs say that treatment for...
