Surveillance Is A Good Option For Certain Type Of Breast Lesion, Study Suggests.

Aunt Minnie (11/1) reports that a new study in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons found that “surveillance is safe” for a type of high-risk breast “lesion called flat epithelial atypia” that is “typically treated surgically.” Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital reviewed 208 patients’ medical records over a nine-year period. Senior author Dr. Constance Lehman said, “Surveillance, rather than surgery, is a good option for women with [flat epithelial atypia] lesions who do not have a genetic mutation and are not interested in chemoprevention.”
