"The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower." Psalms 18:2
...eassurance to breast cancer patients regarding the impact of radiation therapy on lymphedema risk," McCloskey said in a statement released by ASTRO. "The study findings argue convincingly that radiation therapy to the level 1 axilla, considered unavoidable 'collateral damage' when radiating the whole breast, does not contribute to lymphedema risk beyond surgery."
"It's been known for decades that cancer cells use energy differently than most cell types," senior author Dr. David Scadden said in a statement. "So we thought, maybe there are metabolism differences between blood stem cells and their immediate descendants; and are they so different from cancer that you might be able to manipulate energy sources with something that could have an effect on cancer and not harm normal cells?"
...MD, MSHS, assistant professorprofessor of radiation oncology at The David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California Los Angeles. "The study findings argue convincingly that radiation therapy to the Level 1 axilla, considered unavoidable "collateral damage" when radiating the whole breast, does not contribute to lymphedema risk beyond surgery. Several recent analyses have suggested that mastectomy rates are on the rise in the United States, and some have suggested that a desire to avoid radiation and its associated toxicities is a contributing factor. This analysis suggests that lymphedema concerns should not be an impediment to women choosing breast conservation and radiation therapy."
