"Testosterone (T) is the most abundant biologically active hormone in women. Androgen receptors (AR) are located throughout the body including the breast where T decreases tissue proliferation. However, T can be aromatized to estradiol (E2), which increases proliferation and hence, breast cancer (BCA) risk. Increased aromatase expression and an imbalance in the ratio of stimulatory estrogens to protective androgens impacts breast homeostasis...

How I.M.120 can help save your brain.

The FDA has put out an advisory warning patients of the possibility that gadolinium, a contrast material commonly used when performing MRIs, can accumulate in the brain.

Pathologists tend to be very accurate when it comes to invasive cancer, however DCIS is more challenging to diagnose and to figure out how to manage. Despite it's ominous sounding name, DCIS is not considered the equivalent of breast...
