New evidence reveals that risk prediction for breast cancer is imperative in women with atypical hyperplasia of breast tissue.

Despite having advantages over conventional whole breast irradiation, hypofractionated WBI is used by only a third of patients who would benefit.

Evidence is mounting that digital tomosynthesis has better cancer detection rates than digital mammography, especially for women with dense breasts.

A new (theoretical) model using multiple data points, including genetic testing for BRCA genes, could identify women at greatest risk for breast cancer.

Pressure isn't always a bad thing, researchers have found when exploring ways to minimize pain during mammograms without reducing image quality.

New research sheds light on a cost-effective way to improve breast cancer detection rates in women with dense breasts.

Breast cancer awareness campaigns are great, but they should be expanded to provide more clinician education on health disparities and to target women most at risk.
