It has been an exciting year for breast cancer management. From the announcement of the Suppression of Ovarian Function Trial (SOFT) results last December at the 2014 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium to the latest changes in screening, prophylactic mastectomy and the evaluation of new chemotherapy and targeted therapies this review aims to evaluate the advances of the past year. Emphasizing the most significant presentations at the symposium, it provides a look ahead at the changes anticipated in 2016.

Key words: Breast cancer, Breast cancer oncology, San Antonio Breast Cancer, Symposium.
