A study conducted in mice suggests that survivors can dramatically reduce that risk of developing breast cancer in the other breast through treatment with moderate doses of radiation to the unaffected breast at the same time that they receive radiation therapy to their affected breast.
Male breast cancer is a relatively rare cancer in men that originates from the breast. Most people don’t know about it, but men have a small amount of non-functioning breast tissue that is concentrated in the area directly behind the nipple on the chest wall. Cancer of the male breast is the uncontrolled growth of the abnormal cells of this breast tissue.
A new combination of radiation therapies developed escalates radiation doses to safely and effectively treat prostate cancer and lower the risk of recurrence with minimal radiation exposure to nearby healthy tissue and organs, a new study has found.
Women who get a quicker, localized form of radiation treatment for early-stage breast cancer are more likely to need to have their breast removed later on than women treated with traditional radiation of the whole breast.
