Women aged 65 years and older who are diagnosed with breast cancer should be counseled that survivors within 6 months of diagnosis are vulnerable to health-related quality of life (HRQOL) declines, compared to older women without breast cancer, but decrements generally wane after 12 months. Similar HRQOL declines occurred across groups receiving breast-conserving surgery, breast-conserving surgery plus radiation, and mastectomy, suggesting that older women choosing any one of these treatment modalities fare equally well for HRQOL.
