Improving survival in breast cancer Part 2 (Teacher: Michael)

One hundred and twelve patients treated at Breast Clinic at hospital were carefully studied. size of tumour, its dependence on hormones and timing of menstrual cycle were documented. These patients were followed up for ten years and results were analysed. Overall 45% of women operated in first half of menstrual cycle survived while 75% of those operated in second half of cycle were alive after ten years.

These results are very interesting and they can contribute to substantial improvement for women with breast cancer. One must be careful to point out study will have to be repeated in other centres with larger numbers before results are accepted as conclusive, even though study was carried out at centre with excellent reputation.

The findings should definitely be taken into consideration when premenopausal women are scheduled for surgery as they may significantly improve their chances of survival.
