Traditional mammography machines—besides being uncomfortable—rely on ionizing radiation to image a patient's breasts. And as all we all know, radiation ironically increases the risk of cancer developing. So a company called Delphinus Medical Technologies has developed a safer alternative called the SoftVue which…
If you're wondering where heaven on Earth is, it's in China. Surprising, I know. But it's undeniable after you see this ginormous pink and green ball pit found at the Kerry Hotel in Shanghai. It's the world's largest ball pit and stretches over 80 feet long and 40 feet wide. The pit is filled with the amazingness of…
If you need another excuse to show some love to the mammaries, scientists have found that squeezing breasts can actually prevent malignant breast cells from triggering cancer. Yes, squeezing. Guys and gals, do your part in stopping cancer, please.
Just when it thought allegations of poor working conditions were grounded, Samsung has been accused by the South Korean government of running a chip plant that causes cancer.
Cancer is easier to defeat the earlier it's detected. And while getting a weekly mammogram to catch breast cancer in its earliest stages is impractical, wearing a smart sports bra that's just as effective at early detection isn't. So First Warning Systems' Breast Tissue Screening Bra has the potential to revolutionize…
You'll never feel better about watching porn (other than the last time you watched porn) on Pornhub because the site just announced that it will donate money for every porn video watched in the month of October. It's for breast cancer research—a great, great cause.
The video above demonstrates the second prototype of the Med Sensation breast exam glove. Developed by, er, students at Singularity University, the glove is stacked with sensors, which are supposed to give doctors unprecedented feedback while performing breast exams. In theory that could lead to better results and…
A new blood test which identifies a genetic change that doubles the risk of breast cancer could allow doctors to identify women at high risk of the disease years before they develop a tumor.
One of the worst things you can hear from you doctor is that you, or a loved one, has "triple negative" breast cancer. It stubbornly refuses to respond to the best treatments available, so doctors have to resort to chemotherapy. It strikes 16 percent of breast cancer patients, most of them younger than 40. But we may…
A new study shows that up to 25 percent of women who have harmless breast tumors undergo invasive cancer treatments anyway, because mammograms don't differentiate between agressive cancers and those that would never cause symptoms.
A 35-year-old woman preemptively had a hysterectomy and had her breasts removed after she tested positive for a gene strongly associated with breast and ovarian cancer.
Lori Dorn, the wife of Laughing Squid's Scott Beale, recently submitted to a backscatter scan at JFK airport. The TSA pulled her aside for a breast patdown, even though she stated she had breast implants in place after her bilateral mastectomy. Of course, that didn't stop them.
Penn State researchers have identified a virus that's benign to humans but deadly to cancer.
That's a breast on a chip. Why? Because though it looks like a slide, it actually accurately mimics the branching mammary duct system of a breast, where most breast cancers begin. That's key for cancer research since scientists can now test new approaches for treatment, like magnetic nanoparticles. It sounds insane:
Women have posted surprisingly racy status updates lately "I like it on the kitchen floor." "I like it on the couch." They're talking about where they keep their purses, a viral campaign for breast cancer awareness. Could men help, too?
OK, no tit jokes on this one because breast cancer is a serious matter. This is Breastlight, a home appliance that will help women monitor bosoms for lumps.
