Is it just me, or is anyone out there getting tired of the focus on breast cancer only? Lung cancer is the number one killer of men and women combined; breast cancer number one for women alone. I don't remember the last time I saw an article about new studies or treatments for the other killer cancers.

It's because breasts are just so much more important than most other body parts.

B.L.B. is right. These days, it's all about appearance. A woman's breasts is a more attractive subject than prostrate glands, testicles, colons, stomach, throat, lungs or the inside of one's mouth.

Just because your other parts never descended and your breasts are quite feminine.

This is actually a very interesting story because bone drug is a far treatment for breast cancer. However, through studies must happen as different dangerous side effects can always occur.

Breast cancer patients go through a lot of various treatments that they undergo in their fight with the disease. While osteoporosis drugs may help relieve them in some way, they may also be made susceptible to other health risks from additional side effects. It has been known that bisphosphonates like Fosamax are used on certain cancer patients for bone health benefits but they may also experience added risks.
