An 8-year-old Utah girl has developed only the 35th known case of secretory breast carcinoma, a rare form of breast cancer that occurs in young girls.

The “financial toxicity” of cancer is not unique to the U.S., as an American oncologist learned over dinner with two colleagues practicing in the nation of Georgia.

Two pediatric oncologists share their insights into to dealing with the “unsung heartache” of caring for children with cancer.

After a series of regulatory wins, Bristol-Myers Squibb’s immune checkpoint inhibitor nivolumab (Opdivo) failed to gain FDA approval for treatment of BRAF-positive metastatic melanoma, according to Seeking Alpha.

Women with breast cancer had significantly better progression-free survival if they participated in organized stress-reduction activities beginning soon after diagnosis, according to Newsmax.

The government of Haiti, with financial assistance from Boston-based Partners in Health, has implemented a large-scale screening program for cervical cancer and vaccination of girls against human papillomavirus infection in an effort to reverse the country’s high incidence of the cancer and associated mortality, as reported by Associated Press.

A caring husband talks about being “Nurse Ratched” to help his wife deal with cancer-related pain.
