Device gets breast tumor first time around

JOHNS HOPKINS (US) — A new tool can help surgeons remove breast cancer tumors completely the first time, which may help prevent costly and potentially risky second surgeries.The device would speed up pathology examinations of excised breast tissue, allowing an exam to be completed in 20 minutes, while the patient is still in the operating room. If microscopic inspection indicates that some cancer cells remain behind, a surgeon can go back in and remove them without scheduling a second lumpectomy.
