abstract

  • The shape of the survival curve contradicted the idea that it could be explained by levels of circulating estradiol or progesterone. Because observations that surgery was affected by menstrual timing seem not to have persisted beyond the mid-1980s, this study should not be used to support recommendations that surgeons perform breast carcinoma surgery on any particular day of the menstrual cycle.
