Most Women Diagnosed With Breast Cancer Are Notified Over The Phone, Survey Indicates.

Aunt Minnie (9/12, Yee) reports that research indicates “most women who are diagnosed with breast cancer are notified over the phone.” Investigators surveyed 2,900 patients with breast cancer who had been diagnosed between 1967 and 2017. Prior to “2007, approximately 25% of patients were informed of their diagnosis by telephone; after 2007, that number increased to more than 50%, the group found.” The researchers also found that “since 2015, it has risen further to 60%.” The findings were published online in Supportive Care in Cancer.
