Four ways genetic testing is changing cancer careJust as cancer takes many forms, so does genetic testing. Here’s what you need to know.
Breast cancer survivors report poor sexual healthAn Austrian study highlights the need for ob/gyns to counsel breast cancer survivors about sexual health issues, even years after their treatment for the disease
Things that impact racial, ethnic disparities in cancer survivalOne study seeks to understand the underlying causes of racial and ethnic disparities in cancer survival. The results may be surprising.
Study: Racial disparity in breast cancer mortality, ratesA new report from The American Cancer Society shows that in every US state, breast cancer incidence rates are higher in non-Hispanic white (NHW) women than in non-Hispanic black (NHB) women, but rates of death from the disease, however, are higher in NHB women than in NHW women.

Plus: Can in-office hysteroscopy reliably evaluate uterine pathology? Also, researchers say mammographic density changes should be monitored in patients undergoing hormone therapy as a possible indicator of breast cancer.
How does breastfeeding influence breast cancer risk?There are several possible reasons that breastfeeding may influence breast cancer risk, according to the American Institute of Cancer Research. Find out what they are.
