Breast Cancer Drug Can Also Prevent Breast Cancer, Study Finds

Researchers say they can add a new option to the toolkit for women who want to lower their risk of breast cancer – a pill called anastrozole. A study released on Thursday shows that the pill, which is available generically, lowered the risk of breast cancer by 53 percent in women at high risk of the disease.

Outsmarting Breast Cancer With Evolving Therapies

Over the past few decades, changes in the treatment of breast cancer amount to a revolution in patient care. And it’s not over yet. There was a time when the standard approach was a radical mastectomy, which involved removal of not just the breast, but all the lymph nodes in the armpit and underlying muscles in the chest wall.

Mammograms Save Lives

There is a disconcerting effort afoot to reduce a woman's access to mammography screening for breast cancer by making it seem useless or even harmful. The movement dates to November 2009, during the debate over the Affordable Care Act, when the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, which reports to Congress, dropped its recommendation for mammography screening for women in their 40s and instead recommended screening starting at age 50.

CBS News Reported on New Jersey's New Breast Density Notification Law

CBS News ran a story on March 3, 2014 about New Jersey's new Breast Density Notification Law. All mammography patients will be receiving a letter saying "you may have dense breasts." If you're a patient at Women's Digital Imaging, you don't need the letter - we tell you at the time of your mammography exam with your results. We also tell you if we recommend additional imaging. Anyone reading this who is not my patient: Don't wait until you get a letter in the mail. Ask your doctor for the density results in your mammogram and get additional imaging if recommended.

Wolfson to Test Red-Grape-Derived Product on Diabetics

The French are known to eat heavy, fatty and sweet meals – along with red wine in moderation – but their general health does not suffer as a result. This French Paradox has challenged researchers, who will now test type II diabetics with a compound derived from red wine grapes, especially their skins, which contain the powerful beneficial chemical, reservatrol.

Breast cancer law questioned; doctors not required to notify patients of specific risk factor

“This general letter doesn’t really give the patient any information,” said Dr. Lisa Weinstock, a radiologist and owner of Women’s Digital Imaging in Ridgewood, who testified in favor of the original bill in Trenton. “It can put fear into women who don’t have dense tissue and doesn’t give enough information to those who do.”

New Trial to Help Healthy Women Avoid Unnecessary Breast Operations

Researchers at the University of Birmingham and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust are launching a breast screening study aimed at improving the treatment of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) by only operating on women who need surgery - rather than all of those who show signs of abnormal cells.

Are Fears that Deodorant Causes Breast Cancer Unfounded?

Have you ever gotten one of those scary chain emails telling you that your deodorant may cause breast cancer? If so, you are not alone. It has to do with certain underarm products that contain preservatives called parabens. These chemicals can act like the hormone estrogen in the body. Estrogen is known to fuel certain breast cancers. 

In Israel, a Push to Screen for Cancer Gene Leaves Many Conflicted

KFAR SABA, Israel — Ever since she tested positive for a defective gene that causes breast cancer, Tamar Modiano has harbored a mother’s fear: that she had passed it on to her two daughters. Ms. Modiano had her breasts removed at 47 to prevent the disease and said that the day she found out her older daughter tested negative was one of the happiest of her life.
