CHICAGO—Compared to traditional mammography, 3D mammography—known as digital breast tomosynthesis—found 22 percent more breast cancers and led to fewer call backs in a large screening study at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), researchers reported today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). read more
In October, we brought you news of #mamming, “the act of laying your (clothed) boobs on a flat surface” to promote breast cancer awareness and remind women to get mammograms. Now, we have the sequel, thanks to a couple of mystery (we’re guessing British) creatives. Show More Summary
A new clinical trial for breast cancer, published in The Lancet, shows that a single fraction of targeted intraoperative radiotherapy (TARGIT) delivered with the ZEISS INTRABEAM® at time of lumpectomy is non-inferior to traditional external...Show More Summary

Cyclin D1, a protein that helps push a replicating cell through the cell cycle also mediates the processing and generation of mature microRNA (miRNA), according to new research publishing in Nature Communications. The research suggests that a protein strongly implicated in human cancer also governs the non-protein-coding genome. Show More Summary
CHICAGO – Researchers have found that digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) led to reduced recall rates and an increase in cancer detection in a large breast cancer screening program. The results of this study were presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). read more
CHICAGO – Automated breast density measurement is predictive of breast cancer risk in younger women, and that risk may be related to the rate at which breast density changes in some women as they age, according to research being presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). read more

Drastic reimbursement cuts for image-guided breast biopsies, and other medical imaging techniques in the 2014 Medicare Fee Schedule Final Rule, may further reduce women's access to mammography and other breast cancer services.
(Edmonton) Researchers from the University of Alberta and Alberta Health Services have created a computer algorithm that successfully predicts whether estrogen is sending signals to cancer cells to grow into tumours in the breast. By...Show More Summary
Based on the loglines for recent episodes of CBS' Mom, unfamiliar viewers may not realize that the show is a sitcom. One recent episode saw Allison Janney's alcoholic character Bonnie relapse after two years of being sober, and in Monday's installment, Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy) is diagnosed with breast cancer.

A new study out of China confirms that induced abortions increase a woman's risk of breast cancer. Specifically, the study, a meta-analysis,...
A recently published study by Chinese researchers may provide definitive evidence for the pro-life claim that there is a link between abortion and breast cancer.
In the US we are used to abortion advocates claiming that the risk of elective abortion is relatively trivial, and major medical organizations denying any link between abortion and breast cancer. Now a powerful new study from China published last week by Yubei Huang and colleagues suggests otherwise. The article, a meta-analysis pooling 36 studies […]
Women who are members of families with BRCA2 mutations but who test negative for the family-specific BRCA2 mutations are still at greater risk for developing breast cancer compared with women in the general population, according to a...Show More Summary
