Life, the universe and medicine – part 2
So, I have the two appointments I’ve been waiting for, and I’m still waiting to hear about the blood results – on that score, no news should be good news – in my head at least. I have a bronchoscopy on 4th July at 8.15am to take a look down my nose, throat and trachea into the larger brachia of the lungs. I fully expect to be told that I was wasting their time and to go away – nicely of course. The breast surgery team – which seems like quite an assumption to me – will see me on the 19th July; so much for the two weeks ‘urgent’ appointment. I found it fascinating though...

Omega-3 fatty acids may prevent breast implant complications, like capsular contracture
(Wolters Kluwer Health) For women receiving breast implants during reconstructive or cosmetic breast surgery, scarring around the implant - called capsular contracture - is a common, costly, and painful complication. The anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil, might help to avoid abnormal capsule formation suggests an experimental study in the March issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery ® , the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Surgery Tied To 44% Increased Survival In Women With Advanced Breast Cancer
(CNN) — Surgery is tied to improved chances of survival among stage 4 breast cancer patients, a new study suggests, but who has access to surgery and who doesn’t can vary drastically, based on factors including income level and where treatment is administered. Surgery to remove tumors was associated with a 44% increased chance of survival within an average followup period of 21 months, according to the abstract, to be presented at the American Association for Cancer Research’s annual meeting in Atlanta this week. “If breast surgery is to be considered by patients and providers when deciding treatmen...

New machine learning method could spare some women from unnecessary breast surgery
(Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center) Dartmouth researchers have developed and evaluated a machine learning approach of using patient core needle biopsy data to identify the risk that atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) breast lesions may upgrade to cancer. This knowledge can potentially help clinicians and low-risk patients decide whether active surveillance and hormonal therapy is a reasonable management approach. Using the method could spare patients with benign lesions from invasive surgeries while maintaining high sensitivity for predicting malignant lesions. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Why More Women Are Getting a Double Mastectomy
Recent research has shown that despite more having more treatment options, women with cancer in one breast are increasingly choosing to remove both breasts—even though experts in the field say the procedure is not necessarily accompanied by better outcomes. Now, a new study published Wednesday in JAMA Surgery finds that the increase is being driven in part by their surgeons. Doctors generally discourage contralateral prophylactic mastectomy—also known as CPM, or the removal of a healthy breast when the other has cancer—for women at an average risk for additional breast cancer. They do recommend it for wo...
