Some of the most promising breast cancer research has focused on screening and early detection.
The goal is to detect breast cancer at stages earlier than before, especially in the breasts of young women that are too dense for effective mammograms. Meanwhile research in breast cancer surgery has focused on more effective ways to remove tumors, including the possibility of surgical techniques that either destroy the tumor using heat or freezing. Yet other researchers are reviewing the risk factors women can change to prevent being diagnosed with breast cancer. New developments in drug treatments have helped reduce to mortality rate attributed to breast cancer, while looking for ways to treat breast cancer with a reduction in side effects. With new breast cancer research being reported, these results inspire us to think we are one step closer to finding a cure.
