2nd lumpectomy reduces survival rates

Women whose cancer recurs in the same breast and are treated with a second lumpectomy rather than the recommended treatment of a mastectomy are cutting the number of years they survive in half, according to a UC Davis Cancer Center study. Steven Chen, surgical oncologist and lead author of the study, which appeared in The American Journal of Surgery, said that it's likely that patients are asking for lumpectomies when their cancer is diagnosed a second time, and their doctors are simply complying with that request. But that decision puts their survival at risk, the study found.
