Healthy lifestyle, population-based screening mammography and modern medical-oncological treatment in specialized breast cancer centers are the basic elements of the fight against breast cancer mortality. Treatment plan for the individual patient should be recommended by multidisciplinary oncoteam before initiating definitive therapy. Strategy of the medical-oncological therapy of breast cancer is determined by the biological features and stage of the tumor. The most important biological features are endocrine sensitivity, Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 status and proliferative capability of the tumor. In this review the strategy of medical-oncological treatment (chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, targeted biological therapy) of breast cancer is presented, based on receptor status and proliferative capability of the tumor in various stages of the disease.

Given modern treatment strategies, controversy remains regarding whether postmastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT) is necessary for breast cancer patients with 1-3 positive axillary lymph nodes (ALN). O...
Neoadjuvant therapy in the breast cancer setting not only provides an indication of response to systemic therapy, but also results in tumour downsizing/downstaging, which facilitates breast conservati...
Except for meeting the individual palliative need, the benefit of breast surgery in primary metastatic breast cancer (PMBC), also known as de novo metastatic breast cancer, on long-term outcomes remai...
Adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) for breast cancer improves outcomes, but prior studies have documented substantive cardiac dose and cardiac risk. We assessed the mean heart dose (MHD) of RT and estima...
Hormonal therapy is an important component of first line of treatment for breast cancer. Response to hormonal therapy is influenced by the progesterone receptor (PR)-status of breast cancer patients. ...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn how often breast cancer recurs (returns after treatment) in the breast in patients who have been treated with chemotherapy and have had...
Many women with breast cancer now live for decades after their breast cancer treatment. In view of this, modern breast reconstruction surgery after mastectomy for breast cancer aims to rep...
RATIONALE: Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using tamoxifen citrate may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells. Studyin...
The purpose of this study is to investigate and analyse genomic profiles in patient with breast cancer who failed standard treatment, refractory and young breast cancer.
Hormone receptor positive breast cancer is the most common type of breast cancer, comprising 70-80% of all breast cancers. Endocrine therapy is the main type of initial treatment for patie...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
