Breast Cancer Care Has A Lot To Do With Surgeons

According to a new study, a breast cancer patient's choice of surgeon can have a major effect on her treatment. That's because surgeons have a strong influence on whether early stage cancer patients have both breasts removed even when cancer is found in only one breast. Researchers surveyed more than 3,300 women with early stage breast cancer. In addition they surveyed 349 surgeons who treated them. About 16 percent of the patients had both breasts removed.
