When I do my weekly research on breast cancer for this blog, I spend a lot of time on MedlinePlus.
It is an excellent source of information on the latest reports on outcomes of breast cancer research and articles on new studies underway.
MedlinePlus is the National Institutes of Health’s Web site for patients and their families and friends. Produced by the National Library of Medicine, it gives information about many diseases, conditions, and wellness issues in language that is easy to understand. MedlinePlus information is up to date, reliable and free.
You can use MedlinePlus to learn about the latest treatments, look up information on a drug or supplement, find out the meanings of words, or view medical videos or illustrations. You can also get links to the latest medical research on your topic, in our case , breast cancer, and find out about clinical trials.
I’ve listed a few of reports/articles from this site that I have found helpful. There are many more articles and reports to choose from with new ones added on a regular basis.
