Oncologist Hyman Muss on Physicians Helping Patients With Breast Cancer Make Decisions

Hyman B. Muss, professor of oncology at the University of North Carolina and director of geriatric oncology at the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses how patients with breast cancer should press their physicians to help them make the best medical decisions.

"We're in a culture of too much choice," he says, encouraging patients to ask their physician to help them make a definitive treatment choice.

"Some patients do want to make their own decisions, but a lot of patients need to push that doctor in guiding them to give them the best advice and the best decision."
