Prof Atilla Soran - University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Dr Soran talks to ecancertv at ASCO 2016 about the results of his study that looked at whether primary surgery in stage 4 breast tumours is a beneficial strategy.

They found that surgery made systemic treatment on the metastatic sites more effective than systemic treatment without surgery, reporting a 25 percent survival benefit for the surgery group.
