Women with breast cancer often don’t know what kind of tumors they have, a new study found.
A team of oncology and genetic researchers from Georgetown Lombardi and electrical and computer engineers and bioinformatics specialists from Virginia Tech collaborated in an effort designed to study the living cell as an information processing system.
A new analysis has found that many women with breast cancer lack knowledge about their illness, with minority patients less likely than white patients to know and report accurate information about their tumors' characteristics. The findings highlight the need to educate patients about their health conditions, which could lead to more informed treatment decisions.

1 in 8 women struggle with breast cancer, and 50% of survivors are left with unwanted scars. The designers of a new app want women to feel strong and beautiful after their fight against cancer rather than disgusted by what cancer left behind. Show More Summary
Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) is a supplemental imaging technology designed to find tumors that would otherwise be obscured by surrounding dense breast tissue on a mammogram. The new breast imaging technique nearly quadruples detection rates of invasive breast cancers in women with dense breast tissue, according to the results of a major study.
A new breast imaging technique pioneered at Mayo Clinic nearly quadruples detection rates of invasive breast cancers in women with dense breast tissue, according to the results of a major study published this week in the American Journal of Roentgenology.
Sports fans (to use the term loosely) on the Internet can be awful. It doesn't get much lower than using Twitter to mock a college basketball player for his mother's battle with breast cancer Yet that's just what some unnamed cretin did to New Mexico guard Hugh Greenwood before a recent game against UNLV.
