Sixty-two percent of younger breast cancer patients opted for single or double mastectomy over lumpectomy, according to a study to be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting. "Our data suggest that disease and genetic factors may be related to choice, as well as anxiety and how the decision was made. Further research is clearly warranted in an effort to help ensure that women can make informed, quality decisions about their breast cancer therapy," said researcher Shoshana Rosenberg.
