The two groups, taken together, account for about 70 percent of women diagnosed with the most common type of breast cancer. "Chemotherapy has saved a tremendous amount of lives, and will continue to do so", Dr. José Baselga said, via NPR.

The immunotherapy treatment remains experimental and still requires considerably more testing before it can be used more widely. The news now means tens of thousands of women likely won't need treatment beyond surgery and hormone therapy.

According to a study conducted on a group of over 10,000 women who contain specific features about their tumors, those with early-stage forms of breast cancer could forego chemotherapy.

The medical world is buzzing after the results of a yearslong study on breast cancer treatment were presented Sunday at a conference in Chicago.

"The new results show that most women over 50, and who score within a given range, will not get any benefit from chemotherapy over and above hormonal therapy", Dr. Dana Abraham said, with Abraham Breast Clinic in Little Rock. By continuing the personalized assessment of an individual's cancer recurrence risk, oncologists can more effectively determine specifically-tailored treatments based on that patient's genomic results.

"What that test does is look at 21 different genes to see if each is turned on or off and then if it is over-expressed or not", Brawley said.

Dr Ring said: "It is a significant step because it is about avoiding a treatment that, for most people diagnosed with cancer, is what they all fear being suggested to have". But there was a big group of patients in between for whom it wasn't clear which treatment would work best.

Specifically, the overall survival rate is 93.9 per cent for those who received hormone therapy alone and 93.8 per cent for those who received both therapies. "But there is a subset group of women under 50 who we know score 16-25 they would have benefit of chemotherapy treatment".

The study was funded in part by the proceeds from sales of the breast cancer postage stamp.

The New England Journal of Medicine published a study on Sunday that examined a popular genetic test that estimated cancer risk based on nearly two dozen genes linked with the recurrence of breast cancer, according to CNN.

"Every day, women with certain types of breast cancer face the awful dilemma of whether or not to have the treatment, without hard facts about the benefit for them". However, it returned in 2013 and spread quickly. The most common chemotherapeutic regimens used to treat women in the dual, chemoendocrine therapy group were either a docetaxel-cyclophosphamide regimen or anthracycline-containing regimens.

In doing so - they'll avoid the side-effects that come along with it.

Thousands of women have been tested over the years using Oncotype DX to help determine the true effectiveness of chemo. She had tennis ball-sized tumours in her liver and secondary cancers throughout her body, as reported by the BBC.

"Because this is a huge study".

"We just can not afford to do these large clinical studies anymore".

"It also reflects the patients' generosity to help future generations".

"With the recent consultation on tumour profiling tests having already closed, it is crucial that Nice has the opportunity to consider these results as soon as possible", Baroness Morgan said. "I've been anxious for a long time about unnecessary treatment for cancer, and unnecessary side effects from chemotherapy".
