In this Breastcancer.org podcast, Dr. Brian Wojciechowski discusses some of the research that was published in May 2014 or presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting in June 2014.

  • why using Aromasin on top of ovarian suppression medicine is better at reducing risk in premenopausal women than tamoxifen on top of ovarian suppression medicine

  • why some research studies on any links between vitamin D and breast cancer outcomes seem to have mixed results

  • the American Society of Clinical Oncology special series of articles on pain in people diagnosed with cancer

  • why childhood cancer survivors have a higher risk of breast cancer, even if they didn’t have radiation to the chest area
