Provista Blog > 5 Fast Facts About Breast Cancer Detection
Behind lung cancer, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the United States (www.cancer.gov). Despite the large number of women being diagnosed with breast cancer, treatments for the disease often take on a “one size fits all” approach.
Mammography is the current gold standard to detect breast cancer; however, there are known limitations to this tool. If detected early enough, the chances of breast cancer survival are very high, though, for women with unclear findings this is not always the case. A diagnostic tool is needed to work alongside imaging, in order to help diagnose women that obtain abnormal imaging findings as soon as possible.
