UK doctors have found an alternative way to treat breast cancer. Traditionally, treatment involved removing as many as 30 lymph nodes to ensure cancer doesn't spread. 80% of women undergoing this procedure suffered from swelling, shoulder stiffness and pain. New treatment involves using a radioactive dye to locate the main node and only this one is removed. The new treatment was virtually without side effects and recovery was much quicker.
