Cholesterol Diagnosis Related to Breast Cancer Risk

Breast cancer is a malignancy that begins when cells grow abnormally in breast tissue. Although men can also develop breast cancer, it is much more common in women. Among women around the globe, breast cancer is the most common cancer and the fifth most common cause of cancer death. In 2012, nearly 1.7 million new cases, a quarter of all new cancer cases in women, were diagnosed worldwide. More...

Epstein-Barr Virus Increases Risk of MS

While being infected at a young age with Epstein-Barr virus generally causes few, if any, symptoms, delayed exposure into adolescence or adulthood can cause infectious mononucleosis with symptoms that can be quite severe. More...
