Re-excision rate after sector resection for breast cancer: A 5-year retrospective cohort study.

CONCLUSION: BCS using the sector resection technique has a low re-excision rate for positive margins. Younger patients and aggressive tumour biology are important predictive risk factors for positive margins. PMID: 30198861 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Morigi C Abstract The 16th St Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference took place in Vienna for the third time, from 20-23 March 2019. More than 3000 people from all over the world were invited to take part in this important bi-annual critical review of the 'state of the art' in the primary care of breast cancer (BC), independent of political and industrial pressure, with the aim to integrate the most recent research data and most important developments in BC therapies since St Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference 2017, with the ultimate goal of drawing up a consensus for the current optimal ...

CONCLUSIONS: Few interventions are currently available. Whilst some findings are encouraging, improvements on patient outcomes are mixed. Further research should focus on the development and evaluation of effective interventions. PMID: 29730304 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsAs most women with DCIS undergo extensive treatment, and many experience treatment-related complications, the paucity of research on PE to improve and support informed decision-making for DCIS is profound. Research is needed to improve patient and provider discussions and decision-making for DCIS management.

ConclusionSevere depression scores are more common in DCIS patients, despite their excellent prognosis. These results suggest that further improvement of patient education and effective patient doctor communication about the prognostic differences between patients with DCIS and invasive breast cancer is still highly needed.

CONCLUSIONS: This cross-sectional study showed that women treated for DCIS suffered from pain, sensory disturbances and psychological impairment and had unmet rehabilitation needs. Further research is warranted, specifically addressing rehabilitation after diagnosis and treatment of DCIS. PMID: 28447566 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Factors unique to sexual minority populations, such as minority stress, may be associated with higher rates of psychological distress among sexual minority breast cancer survivors. However, presence of psychosocial resources may mediate relationships with distress in this population; enhancement of resilience, in particular, could be an aim of psychological intervention.

Washington, DC (Oct. 20, 2015) — As our shared goal is to save the most lives possible from breast cancer, the American College of Radiology (ACR) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) continue to recommend that women get yearly mammograms starting at age 40. New American Cancer Society (ACS) breast cancer screening guidelines, and previous data used by the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) to create their recommendations, state that starting annual mammography at age 40 saves the most lives. “The ACS has strongly reaffirmed that mammography screening saves lives. The new ACS guidelines show ...

INTRODUCTIONPatients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) have excellent overall survival rates. Yet, previous studies suggested that quality of life (QoL) between patients with DCIS and patients with early-invasive breast cancer (early-IBC) are similar after treatment. We compared anxiety, depression and quality of life of patients with DCIS and patients with early-IBC during treatment, at the initiation of postsurgical radiotherapy.METHODSWe conducted this study within a prospective observational cohort of breast cancer patients indicated to receive adjuvant radiation treatment at the department of Radiation Oncology at ...

Washington, DC – If followed, new U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) breast cancer screening recommendations will result in thousands of unnecessary deaths each year and thousands more women enduring extensive and expensive treatment than if their cancer had been found early by an annual mammogram. To ensure access to mammography, Congress delayed for two years any changes to insurance coverage based on these recommendations, while breast cancer experts vet the recommendations and the process by which they were created. Women ages 40-and-older, and their families, should continue to impress upon lawmakers a...

CONCLUSIONS: There was insufficient evidence to determine whether decision aids to support the informed consent process for clinical trials are more effective than standard information. Additional well designed, adequately powered clinical trials in more diverse clinical and social populations are needed to strengthen the results of this review. More generally, future research on which outcomes are most relevant for assessment in this context would be helpful. PMID: 26613337 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
