Early detection is key for effectively fighting breast cancer! The most important screening test in early breast cancer detection is a mammogram. In addition to an improved outcome, some patients diagnosed with early-stage disease are candidates to have less aggressive surgery, can skip chemotherapy or radiation, or will receive a shorter course of treatment for breast cancer.
Breast cancer does not represent “one disease” but, rather, many different and similar diseases all characterized by normal breast cells becoming cancerous breast cells. Although we do not know why most patients develop breast cancer, abnormal genes appear to play a key role in some patients and genetic testing has assumed a greater role in evaluating many newly diagnosed patients.

Breast cancer survival rates are improving. The average 5-year survival rate for women with invasive breast cancer is 90%. If the cancer is located only in the breast, survival rates are even higher, averaging 99%, five years after diagnosis. Breast cancer screening is vital for early detection and increasingly successful treatment of breast cancer.
