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
