((Important news for younger women who develop breast cancer. An increasingly popular treatment; removing the cancerous lump only, may not always be the best treatment. Now what we are talking about here is a lumpectomy..meaning removing the lump only and not the entire breast. It turns out the odds of a cure may be less in younger women. A study in the journal of Clinical Oncology found women 45 years old or younger had four times the risk of the cancer coming back compared to older women. The reason, younger women tend to have denser and less fatty breast tissue than older women. So there is a higher chance hidden cancer cells could get left behind. ON CAM Also today, what is the best way to treat strep throat? For decades, the standard has been penicillin or something like that for ten full days. But over the past few years, we've cut that ten days down to three. Well a new study in the British Medical Journal says it's really not enough. The new recommendation is 7 days that makes it less likely strep throat will come back.
VT=VO

And finally a word of caution if your taking cold medication and driving. Its not just drowsiness that you need to worry about it is eye problems. Many prescription and over the counter remedies, especially anti-histamines can cause blurred vision. That's even if you don't wear glasses. The problem incidentally can be a lot worse at night so be careful. ON CAM And that's a look at the day's top health stories. I'm Dr. Dave Hnida for CBS News.))
