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

Listen to the podcast to hear Dr. Wojciechowski explain:

  • results of a study that found the targeted therapy Herceptin offers long-lasting benefits for women diagnosed with early-stage HER2-positive disease

  • a study that found occult cancers in more than 2% of women who were having their ovaries removed preventively because of genetics or family history

  • why Hispanic women still need to take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer, even if they have a genetic variant that may lower their risk

  • why more research is needed before a new genomic test can be used to make treatment decisions
