Lisa Carey, MD, professor of medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, discusses the need to minimize interventions for breast cancer treatment.

Breast cancer mortality has fallen by about 1/3 over the last couple of decades, Carey says. However, many patients are being overtreated due to the increase in therapy options across all treatment disciplines, including surgical, radiation, and medication.

Carey says that due to associated toxicities, treatment should be tailored to those who need it most and minimized for patients with less aggressive disease.
