Leading Topics in Breast Cancer Research
Research into new treatments, screening processes and prevention for breast cancer is proceeding in many different directions. Some of the most promising studies are looking at new imaging techniques to improve screening. The goal is to detect cancer earlier, especially in young women whose breasts may be too dense for a mammogram. Some research is focusing on surgery, exploring new ways to remove tumors, as with non-invasive techniques like heating or freezing. Prevention research is looking at risk factors and how they can be changed to reduce the instance of cancer. Radiation and drug treatment research is looking to treat breast cancer with the minimum possible impact on women's lives. Study the research currently being done if you have cancer or fear you might someday. Science gets closer to a cure every day.
