New York Times

A new test might allow some women with the earliest phase of breast cancer to forgo the most aggressive treatment, researchers are reporting this week.

The test analyzes gene activity in tissue surgically removed from women with ductal carcinoma in situ to predict how likely it is that cancer will come back. Those with the lowest risk of recurrence might be spared radiation treatment.
