(Ivanhoe Newswire)-- Discovering breast cancer can be devastating to women, but discovering it through mammography may give them a better chance of survival. Based on a study of almost 2,000 breast cancer patients, researchers at the Swedish Cancer Institute in Seattle say that, in women between the ages of 40 and 49, breast cancers detected by mammography have a better prognosis. "In our study, women aged 40 to 49 whose breast cancer was detected by mammography were easier to treat and...

Based on a study of nearly 2,000 breast cancer patients, researchers at the Swedish Cancer Institute in Seattle say that, in women between the ages of 40 and 49, breast cancers detected by mammography have a better prognosis. The study appears in the March issue of Radiology. "In our study, women aged 40 to 49 whose breast cancer was detected by mammography were easier to treat and had less recurring disease and mortality, because their cancer was found at an earlier stage," said Judith A....

    Some early-stage breast cancers are potentially harmless, but others invade surrounding healthy tissue and become deadly.     This study has identified a small pattern of molecules that highlights important differences between early-stage breast tumors and invasive, deadly ones.     The findings might lead to a way to identify early tumors that will likely become invasive. Researchers have discovered a restricted pattern of molecules that...

Findings could affect both cancer recurrence and overall survival rates A new study reveals substantial differences — by both surgeon and institution — in the rates of follow-up surgeries for women who underwent a partial mastectomy for treatment of breast cancer. Those differences, which cannot be explained by a patient´s medical or treatment history, could affect both cancer recurrence and overall survival rates, according to the study led by Laurence McCahill, M.D....

Journal of the American College of Surgeons Study Reveals Need for Improvements in Decision-Making Process for Breast Cancer Surgery Patients According to the results of a new study published in the January 2012 issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons, many early-stage breast cancer survivors lacked knowledge about their disease and were not meaningfully involved in treatment discussions or asked their preferences regarding the approach to treatment. As a result, the...

Research suggests that internal and surface tumors are 2 disease entities with different causes Researchers are being urged to differentiate between two types of bladder cancer when they carry out studies, after a detailed trends analysis revealed significant differences between the main subtypes of the disease. A major study of nearly 128,000 American bladder cancer cases, published in the January edition of the urology journal BJUI, shows that bladder cancer rates showed a 9% overall...

As a woman ages, her chances of being diagnosed with a lower-risk breast tumor increase, according to a novel study led by UCSF which found that for women over 50, a substantial number of cancers detected by mammograms have good prognoses. The study provides the first molecular evidence of an increase in low- or ultra-low-risk cancers in the tumors when detected by screening mammography. And it provides a basis for integrating molecular profiling at the time of diagnosis to help avoid...

Results also suggest patients who have stray tumor cells in the blood should receive aggressive treatment, even if imaging shows no metastases The presence of circulating tumor cells in the blood appears to have no relationship to survival in women who have just been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, according to new research from Fox Chase Cancer Center. However, the research shows that these stray tumor cells may signal that the disease has spread to other parts of the body,...
