    Mayo Clinic Radio: Breast Surgery/Nail Fungus/Mammogram Guidelines/Hair Loss

For most women, breast surgery means mastectomy. But there are other types of breast surgery, including breast reconstruction and breast augmentation. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, surgeon Dr. Steven Jacobson discusses the different kinds of breast surgery. Also on the program, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has released draft guidelines for breast cancer screening. Dr. Sandhya Pruthi, who evaluates and treats women in the Mayo Clinic Breast Diagnostic Clinic, offers her assessment of the new guidelines. And dermatologist Dr. Dawn Davis has tips for managing nail fungal infections and hair loss.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: The best time to start treating hair loss is when you first notice it.
