What are the cancer risk reduction options for women who are at increased risk of breast cancer but not at the highest risk? Two kinds of surgery can be performed to reduce the risk of breast cancer in a woman who has never been diagnosed with breast cancer but is known to be at very high risk of the disease. The most common risk-reducing surgery is bilateral prophylactic mastectomy also called bilateral risk-reducing mastectomy. Bilateral prophylactic mastectomy may involve complete removal of both breasts, including the nipples total mastectomy , or it may involve removal of as much breast tissue as possible while leaving the nipples intact subcutaneous or nipple-sparing mastectomy. Subcutaneous mastectomies preserve the nipple and allow for more natural-looking breasts if a woman chooses to have breast reconstruction surgery afterward.

How Is Breast Cancer Treated? | CDC
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths annually. As with most cancers, it is a heterogeneous disease and different breast cancer subtypes are treated differently. Understanding the difference in prognosis for breast cancer based on its molecular and phenotypic features is one avenue for improving treatment by matching the proper treatment with molecular subtypes of the disease. In this work, we employed a competition-based approach to modeling breast cancer prognosis using large datasets containing genomic and clinical information and an online real-time leaderboard program used to speed feedback to the modeling team and to encourage each modeler to work towards achieving a higher ranked submission.

In the episode, Cartman 's disrespectful behavior puts him on the wrong side of Wendy Testaburger when he mocks her presentation on breast cancer awareness , which leads to Wendy threatening to beat Cartman up after school. The episode begins with Eric Cartman mocking breast cancer during Wendy Testaburger 's presentation on breast cancer awareness, with Mr. Garrison doing little to stop him. After class, Cartman continues to mock her efforts for breast cancer awareness, and Wendy announces she is going to fight Cartman after school.
Lobular carcinoma in situ LCIS develops in a milk-producing gland lobule and does not spread into nearby breast tissue. Lobular carcinoma in situ LCIS is an uncommon condition in which abnormal cells form in the milk glands lobules in the breast. LCIS isn't cancer. But being diagnosed with LCIS indicates that you have an increased risk of developing breast cancer.
