Mammography screening in women with a personal history of breast cancer detects second breast cancers at an early stage, but has lower accuracy, compared to screening in women without prior breast cancer, according to a study in the February 23 issue of JAMA. "The high prevalence of breast cancer survivors is due to general gains in life expectancy and to improved survival in women with a personal history of breast cancer (PHBC), attributable to improvements in local and systemic treatments...

Breast cancer screening with MRI can detect invasive cancers missed on mammography in women who've undergone chest irradiation for other diseases, according to a new study published online and in the April print edition of Radiology. Women who receive radiation therapy as children and young adults for diseases like Hodgkin's lymphoma face a significantly greater risk of breast cancer later in life. The incidence of breast cancer increases approximately eight years after chest irradiation, and...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Non-invasive breast cancer, or ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), is commonly treated with either breast-conserving surgery (with or without follow-up radiation) or mastectomy. Choosing a treatment depends on clinical factors, the treating surgeon, and patient preferences. Long-term health outcomes depend on which treatment is received. According to a new study, health outcomes are also associated with the treating surgeon. To figure out the effectiveness of each treatment...

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), or non-invasive breast cancer, is typically treated with either breast-conserving surgery"”with or without follow-up radiation"”or mastectomy. The treatment choice depends on clinical factors, the treating surgeon, and patient preferences. Long-term health outcomes (disease-free survival) depend on the treatments received. According to a study published January 3 in The Journal of the National Cancer Institute , however, health outcomes also are...

(Ivanhoe Newswire)-- More than 200,000 women will develop breast cancer in 2010.  For those who already fought the good fight, researchers say having a yearly mammogram greatly reduces the risk of mastectomy in women between the ages of 40 and 50. "The results of this study support the importance of regular screening in the 40 to 50 age group," Nicholas M. Perry, lead author,  M.B.B.S., F.R.C.S., F.R.C.R., director of The London Breast Institute at The Princess Grace Hospital in...

Having a yearly mammogram greatly reduces the risk of mastectomy following breast cancer in women between the ages of 40 and 50, according to a study presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). "The results of this study support the importance of regular screening in the 40 to 50 age group," said lead author Nicholas M.

In a new UCSF study of more than 2 million mammogram screenings performed on nearly 700,000 women in the United States, scientists for the first time show a direct link between reduced hormone therapy and declines in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) as well as invasive breast cancer. The researchers saw such a striking decrease, they believe they also have uncovered indirect evidence that hormones promote breast tumor growth. The declines occurred in the age groups that most widely embraced...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ Breast cancer is the second most common cancer killer in women, but yet some are still worried that the radiation from the mammography might induce breast cancer. The radiation induced by clinically recommended mammography in women aged 49 to 74 results in an estimated 11 deaths per 100,000 women, while the screening saves 497 out of 100,000 lives. "Recently, there have been reports in the press focusing on the potential radiation risk from mammography,...
