Abstract

Over the past year, increasing research attention has been devoted to the issue of women at increased risk of developing breast cancer. These articles focus on a range of issues from recruiting high-risk women into breast cancer trials to recommendations for assessment and counseling women with a family history of breast cancer. In addition, continuing research attention has focused on quality of life, symptom management, and articles related to physician-patient communication. This review summarizes and critiques publications in these areas, and it includes articles reviewing the status of research in psychosocial oncology.
