In this Breastcancer.org podcast, Dr. Brian Wojciechowski discusses some of the research that was published in August and September 2014.

Listen to the podcast to hear Dr. Wojciechowski explain:

  • results of a study that found an abnormal PALB2 gene increases breast cancer risk more than previously thought

  • why bisphosphonates don’t reduce risk in women who’ve never been diagnosed with breast cancer

  • the risk-reducing benefits of exercise for postmenopausal women

  • the risks and benefits of double mastectomy versus lumpectomy plus radiation for women at average risk diagnosed with breast cancer in just one breast
