Wide Surgical Margins Best for DCIS. Lumpectomy for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) should aim for wide margins to keep recurrence risk low even if the woman is getting radiotherapy.
Breast Density Predicts Cancer Return. When the percentage of dense tissue in the breast exceeded 25%, risk of breast cancer recurrence was increased almost twofold relative to patients with lesser amounts of dense tissue.
Even Light Alcohol Drinking Ups Breast Cancer Risk. Women should not exceed 1 drink of alcohol a day, concludes a new meta-analysis of 113 studies of light drinking and breast cancer.
Breast Cancer Screening Under Fire Again. Mammography screening leads to a "substantial amount of overdiagnosis" of nonfatal breast cancer.
Dense Breasts Benefit from Mammogram Plus. Making ultrasound or MRI part of the annual mammography regimen boosts breast cancer detection in women with dense breasts who are at elevated risk, but also increases false positives.
False-Positive Mammogram May Not Be So False.A false-positive finding on mammography points to a greater chance of breast cancer long-term, possibly because of underlying pathology or initial misclassification.
Breast-Sparing Surgery Means More Procedures. Women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) who opt to preserve the affected breast face continued diagnostic and invasive procedures potentially for years after surgery.
A discovery that will change the way the most deadly form of breast cancer is treated. 59 scientists involved in this study expected to see similar gene profiles when they mapped on computer the genomes of 100 tumours.
Fighting Breast Cancer By Eliminating The 'Good Cholesterol' Receptor. Lab research had revealed that mice fed a high cholesterol diet develop more advanced tumors and their tumors produce more SR-BI.
Link Between Breast Cancer Resistance And Timing Of Soy Consumption. Could women with breast cancer who began eating soy as an adult develop a tumor more resistant to treatment?
Consumption Of Cruciferous Vegetables Linked To Improved Breast Cancer Survival Rates. The researchers found cruciferous vegetable intake during the first 36 months after breast cancer diagnosis was associated with a reduced risk for total mortality, breast cancer-specific mortality and recurrence in a dose-response pattern.
ACR, SBI critique AIM mammo study.Criticism to a study published in the April issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine that estimates that the rate of cancer overdiagnosis from mammograms is between 15% to 25%.
Ten-Year Risk of Diagnostic Mammograms and Invasive Breast Procedures After Breast-Conserving Surgery for DCIS. Women with DCIS treated with BCS continue to have diagnostic and invasive breast procedures in the conserved breast over an extended period.
A Cheap, Common, Relatively Safe Diabetes Drug ... for Breast Cancer?Several scientists have observed that diabetic patients taking a cheap and relatively safe drug that's been on the market for years, Metformin.
Continue Routine Screening After False-positive Mammo Result. Researchers found that women with false-positive results had a relative risk of breast cancer that was significantly higher than those who tested negative.
DCIS: Are we overdiagnosing? Is treating DCIS really reducing breast cancer mortality -- or is it leading to false positives and overdiagnosis?
