Breast Cancer Operations Rare for Most U.S. Surgeons

ATLANTA (Reuters) - Most women diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States are operated on by surgeons who perform relatively few of these operations each year, according to a U.S. study released on Monday.
The finding by researchers in Wisconsin is startling in light of recent U.S. and U.K studies that showed women had a better chance of surviving breast cancer if operated on by a surgeon who did at least 15 to 30 of the operations each year.
