Re: Does radiation therapy increase late cardiac death in patients with left bc?

I don't like it when researchers exclude males in their studies involving breast cancer. They did in this one, but I'll once again hope that what is good for the goose is good for the gander, since the conclusion was negative for a relationship between late cardiac death and radiation therapy for left side breast cancer. My scenario exactly, other than I am male.---bird
