Abstract Breast cancer (BC) is the most common malignancy in women with a significant increasing incidence during the reproductive life. However, based on the newest anti-cancer molecular targeting drugs, successful treatments lead to the disease healing particularly in young patients, thus refreshing their motherhood programs. However, as effect of the BC treatment, a premature depletion of the ovarian follicle reserve occurs in more than one-third of patients resulting in permanent infertility. To prevent the cancer treatment-related infertility (CTRI), several options are today utilized. Besides the ovary suppr...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate breast cancer (BC) molecular subtypes association with reproductive characteristics and an index of cumulative exposure to endogenous estrogens (EEI) in Mexican women.MethodsWe performed a study of incident cases and population controls in northern Mexico. We included BC cases with tumor molecular classification in their medical records (n = 509), and classified them as HR+/HER2− (ER+ and/or PR+ and HER2−) (n = 289), HER2+ (HR+ or HR−) (n = 117) or triple negative (TN) (n = 103). We matched controls (n = 1030)...

CONCLUSIONS: We show that although exposure sensitivity would likely be poor, spending more money to get a better smoking measure is unlikely to yield more valid estimates. PMID: 32113733 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report herein the case of a 33-year-old woman who was referred for FDG PET/CT staging prior to pregnancy after a 4-year lost to follow-up for a breast invasive ductal carcinoma (pT2N1 SBRII). FDG PET/CT revealed right supraclavicular lymphadenopathy potentially caused by breast carcinoma recurrence. No additional site was involved. Supraclavicular ultrasonography showed typical “snowstorm” appearance. MRI revealed signs of breast implant intracapsular rupture and signal intensity of silicone within a supraclavicular node. Fine-needle aspiration and microbiopsy of adenopathy finally confirmed silicone granulo...
