Use of alternative medicine by women with early-stage breast cancer.
TLDR
Among women with newly diagnosed early-stage breast cancer who had been treated with standard therapies, new use of alternative medicine was a marker of greater psychosocial distress and worse quality of life.
Web-based survey of fertility issues in young women with breast cancer.
TLDR
Fertility after treatment is a major concern for young women with breast cancer and there is a need to communicate with and educate young patients regarding fertility issues at diagnosis and a need for future research directed at preserving fertility for young breast cancer survivors.
Perceptions, Knowledge, and Satisfaction With Contralateral Prophylactic Mastectomy Among Young Women With Breast Cancer
TLDR
Despite knowing that CPM does not clearly improve survival, women who have the procedure do so, in part, to extend their lives because many women overestimate their actual risk for cancer in the unaffected breast.
Short-term quality-of-life outcomes following laparoscopic-assisted colectomy vs open colectomy for colon cancer: a randomized trial.
TLDR
Only minimal short-term QOL benefits were found with LAC for colon cancer compared with standard open colectomy, and until ongoing trials establish that LAC is as effective as openColectomy in preventing recurrence and death from colon cancer, this procedure should not be offered to patients with colon cancer.
Quality-of-life assessment in clinical trials.
TLDR
Health status, functional status, and health-related quality of life have become synonyms for QOL in the clinical trials literature.
Prognostic impact of pregnancy after breast cancer according to estrogen receptor status: a multicenter retrospective study.
TLDR
Pregnancy after ER-positive BC does not seem to reduce the risk of BC recurrence, and DFS in the whole population, and overall survival (OS) were secondary objectives.
Prospective study of fertility concerns and preservation strategies in young women with breast cancer.
TLDR
Greater concern about fertility was associated with younger age, nonwhite race, not having children, and receipt of chemotherapy, while only a minority of women currently pursue available fertility preservation strategies in this setting.
Adjuvant therapy for very young women with breast cancer: need for tailored treatments.
TLDR
Better treatments for very young patients are required and may involve ovarian function suppression in addition to other endocrine agents in patients with endocrine responsive tumors and a more precise investigation of chemotherapy and its timing, duration, and intensity in those with endocrin nonresponsive tumors.
Effect of pregnancy on overall survival after the diagnosis of early-stage breast cancer.
TLDR
Subsequent pregnancy does not adversely affect the prognosis of early-stage breast cancer and the superior survival seen in this and other controlled series may merely reflect a healthy patient selection bias, but is also consistent with an antitumor effect of the pregnancy.
