News reports that 70% of women with breast cancer don't need chemotherapy need to be heeded with caution: it's a very specific (but substantial) subtype that was studied.

Women newly diagnosed with breast cancer who learn they carry a genetic mutation in a breast cancer gene experience more distress at this test result if they have no family history of the disease.

Researchers from Sydney's Garvan Institute and the UK have developed a glow-in-the-dark 'biosensor mouse' that offers a real-time readout of the rapidly changing "skeleton" within cells.

A study into the "Jolie Effect" by Weill Cornell Medicine and UNSW Sydney researchers demonstrates the power of celebrity illness to change patient behaviour.

A streamlined model of education can be used to offer genetic testing to women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, and will become more important as increasing numbers of women seek testing.

A 10-year funding program from the National Breast Cancer Foundation will allow UNSW-St Vincent’s Clinical School Conjoint Associate Professor Elgene Lim to take a long-term approach to his research.

Virtual reality is allowing scientists to walk through a breast cancer cell to observe the delivery of nanoparticle drugs, potentially speeding up the drug-design process.

Breast Cancer Cell

A powerful new technology that maps the “social network” of proteins in breast cancer cells is providing detailed understanding of the disease at a molecular level and could eventually lead to new treatments.

Work is underway to discover if human tears can play a role in the early diagnosis of breast and prostate cancer.

Fertility is a priority for many young women with breast cancer, yet new research has found many have little knowledge about fertility issues, leading to confusion and conflict around planning for a family.
