Increasing the upper limit for breast cancer screening from age 69 to 75 in the Netherlands resulted in a slight decrease in diagnoses of advanced breast cancer, while early-stage cancer incidence increased, according to a BMJ study. Using Dutch cancer registries, researchers assessed incident breast cancer rates among 25,000 women aged 70 to 75 before and after a mass screening program began to include women up to age 75. The incidence rates of early-stage tumors increased after the screening change, from 248.7 to 369.9 cases per 100,000 women before screening.
A surgeon here has come up with a "map" that can reduce the risks and duration of a common early-stage breast cancer surgery. In such surgery, or a sentinel lymph node biopsy, doctors remove the body structures that cancer cells are most likely to spread to.

I read an article recently that implied the practice of hospitals acquiring physician groups encouraged "clinical integration and multidisciplinary team-based health care." The American Hospital Association has a particularly cogent one, which is: "[A practice] needed to facilitate the coordination of patient care across conditions, providers, settings, and time in order to achieve care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-focused.

The big people-little wheels race was just that. Grown ups raised money to combat breast cancer by riding on tricycles, wagons, big wheels and unicycles.
That might sound like an odd combination, but Dalhousie University PhD candidate Wasundara Fernando thinks it might just be the perfect one to help treat breast cancer. "I am so happy because I can continue my research and contribute to the cancer research effort," Fernando said Saturday about the $17,850 grant she received through the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Training Program award.
