Disturbing Trend In Treating Recurrent Breast Cancer Discovered By UC Davis Researchers

A majority of women with breast cancer today are candidates for lumpectomy, allowing for conservation of most of their breast tissue. Results of a UC Davis study, however, show that a number of women whose cancer recurs in the same breast are treated with a second lumpectomy rather than a mastectomy, defying current treatment recommendations and cutting the number of years those women survive in half.

    it seems like UC davis is always coming up with great new ways to treat cancer, im hoping in the next 20 years we have a cure for some type of skin cancer or cell cancer, or at least something that can slow down the process almost to contain people so they can live a little longer with this disease.
