Recent reports suggested eating chicken could reduce the risk of breast cancer. In the study, those who ate chicken were at lower risk – when compared to women who ate large quantities of red meat.
Body fatness and alcohol consumption are the leading preventable causes of breast cancer in Australian women, a new study in 200,000 women has found.
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 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.
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.
