Early breast cancer usually implies that the cancer is only detectable in the breast and surrounding lymph nodes, particularly in the axilla the armpit. If the cancer can be found outside the breast and axillary lymph nodes, it is called metastatic, which is designated stage IV. Metastatic breast cancer is most often found in the bones, liver, lung or lymph nodes outside the axilla, although it can occur in any organ.
Tempus and the University of Michigan U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center said today they will partner to analyze molecular data related to in-vitro biological models developed at the university, with the goal of identifying the most effective care for patients diagnosed with breast cancer. The collaboration, whose value was not disclosed, is the second between the Cancer Center and the company, which provides clinical decision support through genomic sequencing services and analysis of molecular and therapeutic data. In the latest collaboration, Tempus said it will use bioinformatics and machine learning to analyze molecular, phenotypic, therapeutic—and to the extent available, outcome data for hundreds of breast cancer patients.
Our clinic provides people diagnosed with breast cancer a team-based approach to treatment. During the initial visit, patients may talk with surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons, gynecologists, social workers and nurses. In addition, they will have their mammograms and pathology slides read all in one day.
ANN ARBOR, Michigan -- A new study finds acupressure could be a low-cost, at-home solution to a suite of persistent side effects that linger after breast cancer treatment ends. Researchers from the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center reported in that acupressure helped reduce fatigue in breast cancer survivors. In the new study, they looked at the impact of acupressure on symptoms that frequently accompany fatigue in this population: chronic pain, anxiety, depression and poor sleep.
But many patients said they haven't received enough help navigating the process, even though they'd like to be talking to their healthcare provider about it. According to the study, the results of this lack of communication have been devastating. About 1 in 5 white women in the survey and 1 in 3 Latina women reported having to cut down on food spending to pay for medical costs.
The fellow is directly involved in the evaluation and subsequent surgical management of patients seen in this clinic. The BCC also has a weekly satellite clinic in a facility 10 minutes away from the University Hospital where undiagnosed breast problems are evaluated. The fellow is involved in staffing this clinic along with another faculty surgeon.

The University of Michigan Breast Care Center was one of the first of its kind, providing the most thorough, accurate and prompt evaluation possible to women with breast problems in a single visit. Our multidisciplinary treatment center, comprised of more than thirty breast disease experts, delivers advanced treatment in a patient-centered environment for benign, high risk, and cancerous, breast problems.

As more healthcare continues to move from the hospital to the outpatient environment, our ambulatory care outpatient imaging centers have expanded to nine locations in southeastern Michigan, providing state of the art imaging to our patients closer to home. Our faculty and trainees also provide radiology services to patients at the nearby Ann Arbor Veterans Administration Hospital.
While they are the most common breast cancer screening test, mammograms are an imprecise tool, Thurber said. According to the American Cancer Society, screening mammograms do not find about 1 in 5 breast cancers. To improve this process, Thurber and his team believe they have found a more effective method of determining which tumors need to be treated immediately.
