Study questions treatment of 'stage zero' breast cancer
A new study is raising questions about the effectiveness of treating early "stage zero" breast cancer.
The study found that aggressively treating such cancers did not lead to higher survival rates.
Counselors at Adelphi's Breast cancer hotline and support program say there's no one answer and that every diagnosis is different
"You have to look at your family history, you have to look at your own personal experience, you have to talk to your doctor and you have to do what's right for you," says Heather Edmonson.
The study also found that women younger than 40 and African-American women had a higher risk of death regardless of treatment.
