Abstract

One in every 12 women will develop breast cancer; the incidence increases with age, dietary fat intake, caloric intake, height, and weight. The 10-year survival rate of breast cancer patients who refuse therapy is virtually zero. Segmental mastectomy plus radiation and lumpectomy, combined with systemic (adjuvant) chemotherapy, are alternatives under investigation at the National Institute of Health that may increase the survival rate by decreasing metastatic complications.
