London: Breast cancer patients can reduce their chance of the disease returning if they let surgeons remove small amounts of the healthy tissue surrounding the tumour.Research has shown that the chance of the disease returning can be reduced by more than 90 percent if at least two mm of normal cells surrounding the cancer are taken out.
Lead author Stephen Ward from the hospital`s department of breast surgery said: "Patients undergoing breast conserving surgery are more likely to have recurrent cancer and the amount of tissue removed around the tumour, known as the free margin, remains controversial.""A survey of 200 UK breast surgeons published in 2007 revealed wide variations in what they considered to be an adequate margin, with 24 percent wanting a clear margin of one mm and 65 percent wanting a margin of two mm or more."IANS
