Some Good News
This is some good news from the 2010 Breast Cancer Symposium. I realize that nothing is good enough until all women who are diagnosed with breast cancer can be cured. But we are going in the right direction. Here is a quote from Medscape and a link to read more:
A steady improvement in survival from breast cancer over the past 6 decades has been shown in a review of records from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
The review shows a "dramatic shift in the natural history of the disease," said Aman Buzdar MD, professor of medicine and breast medical oncology at M.D. Anderson.
"If patients are appropriately managed, they have a much better chance of surviving breast cancer today than they would have had 20, 30, or even 10 years ago, because therapies are constantly evolving and improving," he added.
