1. Cortisol, Stress and Breast Cancer
We hear a lot today about cortisol, especially in the context of weight loss. But did you know that monitoring your cortisol levels plays an important role in reducing your risk of breast cancer as well?
2. Triple Negative Breast Cancer
Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) tumors do not express any of the three significant markers that other breast cancers do. They are aggressive (high grade) tumors, and the survival rate for this breast cancer subtype is much lower than for other types of breast cancer.
3. Local Recurrence of Breast Cancer
In this article, we'll look at some of the common symptoms of a local breast cancer recurrence and talk about what to do next.
4. Food, Chemo, and what to eat when you can't
One of the never talked about side effects of Chemo treatment is how it affects your appetite. The key is to eat simple, and eat those items that taste good. And forget about creating a "Balanced Diet".
5. Sugar and Breast Cancer
Does eating sugar cause breast cancer? In a word, no. Of course not. If you have a Snickers bar, it will not give you cancer.If we dig a little deeper, however, there are some interesting schools of thought around sugar and the role it plays in our cancer diagnosis.
6. Breast Cysts
Finding a lump can be terrifying, but cysts are usually harmless. Find out what to do if you think you have one.
7. Is DCIS Breast Cancer?
What is DCIS? Is it really breast cancer? Do I need treatment?
8. Do I Need a Mammogram?
Are mammograms worth the risk? How accurate are they? Are there other/better screening tools?
9. Tumor Status Changes Affect Treatment
New research shows the hormonal status of tumors changes throughout the course of the disease; however, treatment is usually based on the initial status. Therefore patients may not be receiving optimal treatment.
10. Statin Drugs May Treat Breast Cancer
Recent research studies have shown that cholesterol-lowering statins may keep breast cancer at bay in some patients.
