Dr. Wojciechowski Discusses New Research in Breast Cancer

Friday, August 08, 2014
In this podcast, Brian Wojciechowski, M.D., Breastcancer.org medical adviser, discusses some of the research that was published in July 2014. Listen to the podcast to hear Dr. Wojciechowski talk about:
  • why treating inflammatory breast cancer with three treatments -- chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation -- improves survival compared to using only one or two of these treatments
  • the reasons why having more moles is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer, though moles themselves DO NOT cause breast cancer
  • research showing that women with an abnormal BRCA1 gene -- but not an abnormal BRCA2 gene -- diagnosed with breast cancer are more likely to survive if they have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed
  • a study that found combining 3-D mammograms (digital tomosynthesis) and digital mammograms find more breast cancers with fewer false positives
