J. Michael Dixon, MBChB, MD, Professor of Surgery and Consultant Surgeon of the University of Edinburgh; and Clinical Director of the Edinburgh Breast Unit at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, Scotland, discusses how breast cancer treatments have advanced in the past few years.

Dixon explains that because of better screening and increased patient education breast cancer is being caught at an earlier stage, which is improving treatment. Surgical improvements have also lead to better outcomes. The use of breast conserving surgery has greatly improved, which in turn improves the quality-of-life of breast cancer survivors.
