Studies: Some cancer treatments can be skipped story image
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - New research says tens of thousands of women each year might be able to skip at least some of the grueling treatments for breast cancer without greatly harming their odds of survival.

Breast cancer treatments include surgery, radiation, heavy chemo, hormones or some combination.

One of the new studies suggests that many women 65 and older can skip radiation after surgery for early-stage tumors.
