Session moderator during the 2021 American Society of Breast Surgeons Annual Meeting, Sarah Blair, MD, FACS, Vice Chair of Academic Affairs for the Department of Surgery at University of California San Diego, urged widespread dissemination of these survey findings.

“I was struck by how important these data are,” said Dr. Blair. “Every day, I see patients who tell me they have breast pain and are worried about recurrence because of this pain. It’s critical that we find a way to disseminate these data to our patients; this way, they will be reassured that these symptoms are to be expected, that this is not out of the norm, and that this doesn’t mean [their] cancer has come back,” she concluded. 

DISCLOSURE: Dr. Blair reported no conflicts of interest.
