Why You Should Always Ask For A Second Opinion
Two years ago, when actress-singer Rita Wilson was 58, she underwent a double mastectomy and had this to say about it: Getting a second opinion saved her life. Wilson was right to insist on a second opinion, according to a Mayo Clinic study released this month. Of 286 patients who sought a second opinion from the clinic over a two-year period, 88 percent received a diagnosis that was either modified or completely different from the first one they received. Sixty-six percent of patients received a refined diagnosis and 22 percent received a completely different one, the study found.  Only 12 percent received confirmati...

Why This Mom Is Sharing Pictures Of Her Body After Breast Cancer Surgery
One courageous woman wants to spread awareness about breast cancer by sharing gorgeous images of her body after surgery. (Some images below may be considered NSFW.) Jennifer, a mother of two and breast cancer survivor, came across photographer Natalie McCain's The Honest Body Project, and wanted to participate. The project, which showcases intimate portraits of mothers' bodies alongside narratives about their lives, aims to empower mothers to feel good about their bodies and help instill body confidence in their children. Jennifer wanted to represent a specific group of moms -- those who are battling, or have survived,...

Sometimes, Diagnosis Is in the Eye of the Beholder
Rita Wilson's recent announcement of her experience with an early breast lesion emphasizes both the importance, and the limitations, of the pathologist in the evaluation of a breast biopsy. As laypeople, we assume that a pathologist can look at a piece of tissue and easily tell whether it is cancer or not. The truth is that there is some art as well as science in diagnosis. To evaluate a biopsy, the tissue that is removed is cut up into small pieces and fixed in formalin to preserve it. It is then dehydrated and fixed in paraffin so that it can be sliced into slivers in a machine similar to the one used to slice ham. Ea...

Wearing a bra 'doesn't raise breast cancer risk'
Conclusion This study suggests that past bra-wearing characteristics are not associated with breast cancer risk in postmenopausal women. The study does have some limitations: There was only limited matching of the cases and controls, which could mean that other differences between the groups may be contributing to results. The potential confounders assessed were reported to not have a large impact on the results, which suggests that the lack of matching may not be having a large effect, but these results were not shown to allow assessment of this by the reader. Controls were not selected for the women with invasive d...

Common breast cancer subtype may benefit from personalized treatment approach
The second-most common type of breast cancer is a very different disease than the most common and appears to be a good candidate for a personalized approach to treatment, according to new research. Invasive lobular carcinoma, characterized by a unique growth pattern in breast tissue that fails to form a lump, has distinct genetic markers which indicate drug therapies may provide benefits beyond those typically prescribed for the more common invasive ductal carcinoma.

Anastrozole may cut breast cancer risk
Conclusion Overall, the study provides solid and believable evidence that anastrozole can reduce the number of new cases of breast cancer in postmenopausal women at higher than average risk of developing breast cancer. The study has many strengths, including its large sample size and robust study design. However, the study also has limitations to note. The results only apply to a specific group of postmenopausal women at a higher than average risk of developing breast cancer. "Higher risk" was defined using a number of very specific criteria. This means the results are not applicable to other groups of post...

Some women with abnormal breast lesions may avoid surgery
Surgery is not always necessary for women with a type of breast tissue abnormality associated with a higher risk of cancer, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology. Researchers said that periodic imaging and clinical exam are effective in these patients when radiology and pathology findings are benign and concordant, or in agreement. Atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) are abnormal breast lesions that occasionally appear as incidental findings in breast biopsies...
