Bonnie Remmick's insight:

Before you terrorize women everywhere, read the entire article.  The study was fairly small and it completed years ago.  Each case of breast cancer is so different, even in early stage women over 50 category!  This does nothing but add to the scares of breast cancer, and serves no one.

As a woman who had DCIS in the remainder of the  tissues, I chose to have a mastectomy.  What is your basis for telling me I am less apt to survive? Based on what? A 1980 study, of a select few.  Treatments were different.

I think this is incomplete unprofessional scare tactics by CBS, the writer, and the staff..

Lumpectomy plus radiation safer than mastectomy, study suggests
KVUE
According to a new study from Duke University, women who undergo lumpectomies plus radiation during the early stages of breast cancer fare better than women who endure mastectomies.
Bonnie Remmick's insight:

I wish the media would read all the i nformation before posting about this and making women everywhere terrified!  This study is too small to draw this condlusion and if you read to the end of the article the doctor says something to this effect.

 

Not all BC, can end in lumpectomies depending upon the margins and what is acceptable at the institute where you are having the surgery.

 

Study SUGGESTS..................  They do not know. There is not enough data for me to satisfactorily make that conclusion.  However, I personally can just wait and see.  I had two lumpectomies and then the full mastectomy LB.  I don't feel that my chances of death are higher.  You are basing this on ol data, an each cancer is so different.
