The Benefits of Exercise After Breast Cancer
Aerobic exercise and resistance training could help women who have survived breast cancer live longer, according to a new study.
Several New Medications Approved
As a new year begins, we celebrate the beginning of something new and exciting. This year, that includes several new medication approvals from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
More Exercise, Less Disease
Many past studies have shown that physical activity provides health benefits, but exactly how much physical activity provides the most benefit?
Breast Cancer Rx and Heart Disease Risk
Researchers have known little about the use of aromatase inhibitors and heart disease risk in breast cancer survivors — until now.
Protecting the Heart During Chemo
Chemotherapy can greatly improve cancer patients' chances of survival. But with this treatment comes a serious and equally life-threatening risk: heart failure.
How Diet Could Affect Breast Cancer Risk
The Mediterranean diet has long been promoted as a heart-healthy way of eating. But, for women, there may now be another good reason to adopt this diet.
Cancer Patients Live On
Cancer is a scary diagnosis, but there’s some really good news out there these days — more people are surviving.
This Menopause Therapy Didn't Affect Death Risk
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been a subject of controversy since past research linked it to health problems like cancer. New evidence, however, might clear up some concerns about this treatment.
Breast Cancer Rx Might Prevent Early Menopause
It’s good news for young women who have had breast cancer treatment and still want a baby. A medication called goserelin may help prevent the ovarian failure often caused by chemotherapy.
Smoking May Be Even Riskier Than Once Thought
Smokers, it’s never too late to quit — and there may now be even more good reasons to do so.
