Breast cancer treatment revolutionised

19th April 2012

The Department of Health and Cancer Research UK are due to publish a review of the breast cancer screening program later this year. The review could revolutionise the way breast cancer is diagnosed and treated.

Findings suggest up to 10 women undergo unnecessary treatment for every one whose life is saved. However, researchers have discovered breast cancer can be separated into ten distinct types which give patients dramatically varying chances of survival. Knowing which category a patient's cancer falls into will help doctors determine which treatments stand the best chance of eliminating the tumour.
