Weekly Round-Up


Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

The US Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) have both released updated recommendations on the use of medications (tamoxifen, raloxifene, anastrozole and exemestane) to reduce the risk of estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer in women who are considered to be at high risk for the disease. Dr. Attai shares a summary of the recommendations with links to the original sources for those who want to learn more.
