This was frankly pointed out by a patient who presented me with the book she had written after her treatment called “Breast Cancer? Let Me Check My Schedule.”

Cancer remains a disruption, but not nearly as much as three decades ago.

Thirty years ago, treatment was the same for most breast cancers and included mastectomy, chemotherapy and often radiation.
