Navigating breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, I learned that my active involvement in the decision-making process was essential.
Researchers are developing a vaccine to prevent breast cancer in healthy women, and hope to begin clinical trials within two years.
A major study on breast cancer screening was published recently in the journal of the American Medical Association.
Top cancer research stories for Winter 2014 include studies on mammography, risk reduction for carriers of BRCA gene mutations and radiation therapy for early stage breast cancer.
While mammography screening has increased as a result of “awareness” campaigns, we are far from being able to declare success in the fight against breast cancer.
