Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting women, with increased mortality and morbidity rates globally. National Cancer Institute (NCI) funded researchers are working on advanced knowledge on the prevention, screening, and treatment of breast cancer. Upon conducting a literature search on the genetics, screening, prevention, risk factors, and treatment of breast cancer, I was able to identify several sources and I decided to review only three as discussed below.

The first article by Loomans-Kropp & Umar (2019) reports on cancer prevention and screening, which is

relevant to my project on breast cancer. The second article by Chen et al. (2019) discusses the significance of the association between the breast and microbiomes in modulating therapeutic response and helping in diagnosing and staging breast cancer. The final article by Jayasekera & Mandelblatt (2019) is a systemic review of cost-effective prevention, screening, and treatment strategies for breast cancer. All three sources are updated, and published within the past five years, in the English language. They are also peer-reviewed which supports the credibility and accuracy of the information shared.
