Busy in Barcelona: Sorting out the headlines

A huge number of research studies coming out this week from the Barcelona breast cancer conference.
Some of it makes me excited and inspired, and I will admit some makes me confused and concerned.

This item on beta blockers lowering the rate of metastasis really was interesting. 

I think this next item could be a bit controversial, especially in the U.S., looking at the survival rates and the role of mastectomies for women with BRCA genes.

And of course...the mammogram controversy continues.

If nothing else, you now have something to chat about with your doctor at your next visit!
