Better education on breast reconstruction may be needed after cancer
By Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – When it comes to deciding to have breast reconstruction after surgery for breast cancer, most women are generally satisfied with the decision-making process, a new study suggests. “Our findings generally were good news - women who wanted reconstruction got it, those who didn’t were generally satisfied with the decision process,” said Dr. Monica Morrow, the study’s lead author from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. For example, some women who didn’t undergo breast reconstruction said they worried that the implants would interfere with cancer screenings later on, or that they feared the implants. “Our study points to specific topics doctors can address with patients - safety of implants, lack of interference with cancer detection by reconstruction that are of concern to patients,” Morrow wrote in an email.
Police officer resigns, another is fired after Ferguson incidents

Police officers keep watch while demonstrators protest the death of black teenager Michael Brown in FergusonBy Brendan O'Brien (Reuters) - A police officer has resigned after pointing a rifle at protesters during racially charged demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, and another has been fired for inappropriate social media posts stemming from the two weeks of civil unrest, officials said on Friday. Violent protests erupted in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson after white police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed black 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, drawing global attention to the state of race relations in the United States. Police and demonstrators in Ferguson clashed nightly for days after the shooting, with authorities coming under fire for mass arrests and the what critics said were the use of heavy-handed tactics and military gear. At a protest on Aug. 19, Ray Albers, a police officer in the neighboring community of St. Ann, pointed his rifle at a Ferguson protester during a heated verbal exchange, an episode that was captured on video and widely circulated on social media.
