Harrison said that many students have been affected by cancer, and many want to become involved with events like this, because every bit helps.

Bottom Line: A statistical method could fill the gaps in the USA cancer registry data to estimate the short- and long-term risk of recurrence of hormone receptor (HR)-positive and HR-negative breast cancers.

"Therapies such as photodynamic therapy (PDT), involving light and a photosensitizing chemical substance, which used in conjunction with molecular oxygen can cause cell death, offer a high degree of control that is effectively used to manage cancer in early to advanced stages", he says.

The odds grow more daunting as women age.
