A new method for early and accurate breast cancer screening has been developed by researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and Soroka University Medical Center, using commercially available technology.
 
   Study shows no increased risk of breast cancer recurrence after DIEP flap reconstructionStudy shows no increased risk of breast cancer recurrence after DIEP flap reconstruction
 
After surgery for breast cancer women who have undergone breast reconstruction using abdominal tissue do not have a higher risk of recurrence than women who have not undergone breast reconstruction. This has been shown by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in a study published in the British Journal of Surgery.

Quality of life for women treated with a more targeted radiotherapy treatment - called accelerated partial breast irradiation - is at least as good as quality of life for women treated with standard radiotherapy, according to research presented at the ESTRO 37 conference and published simultaneously in The Lancet Oncology.
 
 Study may explain how chemoresistance evolves over time in some triple-negative breast cancers
 
Study may explain how chemoresistance evolves over time in some triple-negative breast cancersTriple-negative breast cancer is an aggressive form of the disease accounting for 12 to 18 percent of breast cancers. It is a scary diagnosis, and even though chemotherapy can be effective as standard-of-care, many patients become resistant to treatment.

Blue light exposure at night linked to higher risk of developing breast and prostate cancerA study performed by an international team led by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), a center supported by the "la Caixa" Foundation, reports a link between exposure to blue light at night and higher risk of developing breast and prostate cancer.
 
 
 More suspected cancer cases can be identified early within primary care
 
More suspected cancer cases can be identified early within primary careConsiderably more cases of suspected cancer can today be identified early within primary care. Partly based on symptoms but also statistics on the patients' visits to health centers, indicates research from Sahlgrenska Academy at University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
 
 
 Future screening is more likely for people with false-positive cancer screening results
 
Future screening is more likely for people with false-positive cancer screening resultsAn analysis of electronic medical records indicates that patients who previously had a false-positive breast or prostate cancer screening test are more likely to obtain future recommended cancer screenings.
