A sweep of the latest medical developments in breast cancer from Google Alerts, for the week ending 18 October 2013.

You are always welcome to post any new developments that I’ve missed out in the comments box and I’ll be glad to include them in the compilation, and include an acknowledgement of your contribution.]
