Older Women With Breast Cancer Probably Won’t Die From It: Study

TUESDAY, June 21 (HealthDay News) — Older women with breast cancer are more likely to die from cardiovascular disease and other causes than from their cancer, a new study finds.

Researchers analyzed data from more than 60,000 women in the United States, aged 66 and older, who were followed for at least 12 years after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

By the end of the follow-up period, nearly half of the women were still alive. Those who died lived to an average age of 83 and more than two-thirds of them died from causes other than breast cancer. In fact, cardiovascular disease killed more of the women than breast cancer.

Studies and statistics are on thing.  But passively watching and waiting–while it may be prudent–can be easier said than done.

Americans expect results!  We want action!  Sitting back patiently isn’t how many of us are wired.

Still, that is exactly what would be best for a lot of cancer survivors–especially those who are older and have breast cancer.

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
