This year, more than 230,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and nearly 40,000 women will not survive their battle with cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. New research from the University of Missouri shows that certain factors, including marital status, having children in the home, income level and age, affect the likelihood of depression in breast cancer survivors. Further, depressed patients are less likely to adhere to medication regimens, potentially complicating...

Researchers from Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah have discovered a new way to model human breast cancer that could lead to new tools for predicting which breast cancers will spread and new ways to test drugs that may stop its spread. Their results are published online today in the journal Nature Medicine. To create this improved model for breast cancer studies, the researchers grafted tumor tissue from consenting breast cancer patients directly into mouse mammary...

Obese women develop breast cancer at a younger age than other women. Furthermore, the likelihood of developing breast cancer is much higher in patients with morbid obesity. This is one of the main conclusions drawn in an article recently published in the Spanish journal Nutrición Hospitalaria by the University of Granada research group CTS 367, coordinated by the Nursery Department professor María José Aguilar Cordero. The researchers examined a...

ATLANTA, July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Earlier this year, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed a possible link between breast implants and a rare type of cancer (anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or ALCL).

Researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University Massey Cancer Center have discovered a new biomarker related to the body's immune system that can predict a breast cancer patients' risk of cancer recurrence. This breakthrough may lead to new genetic testing that further personalizes breast cancer care. The study, published in the journal Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, is the first to use tumor infiltrating immune cells located at the site of the tumor to predict cancer recurrence....

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ Tamoxifen, taken by women as a preventive measure against breast cancer, sufficiently compensates for its side effects in post-menopausal women under the age of 55 years, according to this study. Research has shown that tamoxifen can protect against breast cancer for years after treatment ends, but identifying the group of women who can most benefit from the drug as a cancer preventive agent, without experiencing serious side effects, is a challenge. Side effects...
