A model developed to estimate the absolute risk of breast cancer suggests that a 30-year-old white woman in the United States has an 11.3 percent risk, on average, of developing invasive breast cancer by the age of 80, according to a new study published online by JAMA Oncology. Breast cancer is a common form of cancer diagnosed in women. Show More Summary
A new study suggests even women with a family history of breast cancer can reduce their risk with lifestyle changes
Marc Cox, Ph.D., associate professor in The University of Texas at El Paso's Department of Biological Sciences, has been selected as the 2016 Texas Inventor of the Year for his treatments for breast and prostate cancer developed at UTEP.
Researchers have identified a particular gene expression pattern in normal-appearing breast tissue around tumors that was linked to lower 10-year survival rates for women with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.
I hoped that my feisty patient who prevailed over brain cancer would be spared another terminal diagnosis, but after two years in remission, her mammogram showed breast cancer. She agreed to surgery, but declined further chemotherapy. When the time comes, she asked, would I help her end her life? The End of Life Option Act goes into […]
Women with a high risk of developing breast cancer based on family history and genetic risk can still reduce the chance they will develop the disease in their lifetimes by following a healthy lifestyle, new research led by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health suggests.
In the journal npj Breast Cancer, researchers reported they identified a particular gene expression pattern in normal-appearing breast tissue around tumors that was linked to lower 10-year survival rates for women with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.
Breast cancer cells use a key to access bone marrow, where they hide and cause relapse years later. Now, scientists think there may be a way to stop them.
Ask almost any health-conscious woman who’s mustered under a giant pink ribbon, and she’ll tell you what an American woman’s chances are of getting breast cancer in her lifetime: one-in-eight. But that’s a national average. And as the relative influence of genes, behavior and environmental factors...
Building on data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project, a multi-institutional team of scientists has completed the first large-scale "proteogenomic" study of breast cancer, linking DNA mutations to protein signaling and helping pinpoint the genes that drive cancer. read more
A molecular key that breast cancer cells use to invade bone marrow in mice, where they may be protected from chemotherapy or hormonal therapies that could otherwise eradicate them, has been discovered by a team of researchers. Through...Show More Summary

A new study integrates genomic and proteomic data to yield a more complete picture of cancer biology than either analysis could do alone, report scientists.
If you're seeking an expert to discuss a new study (in Nature) about the future of personalized breast cancer treatment, Dr. Amanda (Mandy) Paulovich, Oncologist and Geneticist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and one of the study's authors, is available.
Yep, you heard it here first! One of the rockstars of last year’s RedState Gathering in Atlanta is joining us again in Denver this August. Make plans to join us today. Carly is a tested leader. She has battled breast cancer and buried a child. Show More Summary
Penelope Cruz heads to a Q&A session on Monday (May 23) in New York City. The Oscar winning actress had spent the past few days in the city promoting her new movie Ma Ma, about a teacher who is struck with a breast cancer diagnosis. PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Penelope Cruz Penelope [...]
