NCCN Updates Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Risk Reduction Guidelines
Date:2/3/2009

p>

Significant additions were also made to the portion of the NCCN Guidelines providing recommendations for patients undergoing breast reconstruction following surgery. It is now recommended that women receive an evaluation detailing the likely cosmetic outcome of a lumpectomy prior to the actual surgery. Furthermore, women who are not satisfied with the cosmetic outcome following completion of breast cancer treatment should be offered a plastic surgery consultation.

Notable additions to the NCCN Guidelines for Breast Cancer Risk Reduction include updates to two risk-reduction agents, tamoxifen (Soltamox(TM), AstraZeneca) and raloxifine (Evista(R), Eli Lilly and Company). Tamoxifen is recommended for premenopausal women with a history of atypical hyperplasia to reduce breast cancer risk. For postmenopausal women, raloxifene is listed as equivalent to tamoxifen in reducing the risk of developing invasive breast cancer; however, it did not provide the same level of risk reduction for developing non-invasive breast cancer.

Breast cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death after lung cancer in women in the United States. It is estimated that more than 180,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in 2009.

NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology(TM) are developed and updated through an evidence-based process with explicit review of the scientific evidence by multidisciplinary panels of expert physicians from NCCN Member Institutions. The most recent version of this and all the NCCN Guidelines are available free of charge at www.nccn.org.
