Study Review

The purpose of the Understanding Patient Trade-Offs When Choosing Between Breast Conservation Surgery (BCS) and Mastectomy Study is to learn what is most important to women when they are faced with deciding between a mastectomy (with or without reconstructive surgery) or lumpectomy with radiation. This information may help physicians learn how to better communicate surgical options to patients. It will also help the researchers develop educational materials to assist women as they are making their surgical decision.
