Factors Affecting Surgical Decisions in Newly Diagnosed Young Women with Early-Stage Breast Cancer.

Summary of "Factors Affecting Surgical Decisions in Newly Diagnosed Young Women with Early-Stage Breast Cancer."

Given that young women with breast cancer often have concerns and priorities attributable to their life stage, we conducted a series of interviews to better understanding the surgical decision-making experience among women diagnosed at age ≤40. Women spoke of how the potential effect of an extended recovery was affecting their decision and, in some cases, contributing to decisional conflict. Several women described their worry of leaving cancer cells behind; others cited the need for continued surveillance as a consideration. Attention to situational anxiety and concerns about recurrence are warranted to ensure that decisions are made in a supportive and patient-centered setting.
