Surgeons and healthcare setting influence the type of breast cancer surgery women undergo
from Oncology Nurse Advisor
Breast cancer is one of the few major illnesses for which physicians may not recommend a specific treatment option. North American women are more likely to opt for precautionary breast surgery when physicians do not specifically counsel against it, according to a new study. This research was presented at the American Society of Breast Surgeons Annual Meeting, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The research also demonstrates how clarity during consultations and the capability of clinical facilities also play important roles influencing a woman's breast cancer treatment choices.
