Early Detection Critical for Breast Cancer Patients

Courtesy of aggressive early screening methods about 61,000 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in its earliest stage in the coming year. When cancer is caught in situ, it is often considered noninvasive and highly treatable. This is precisely why early screening methods have been developed and are so strongly recommended by healthcare professionals. Research has backed up the importance and value of screening repeatedly. A relatively new study sheds light on the value of detecting ductal carcinoma at the earliest stage of development. Research has found that early detection of this condition lowers the likelihood of invasive breast cancer being found over the next three years.

The latest research further supports the value of early screening protocols practiced in doctors’ offices across the country. Women are strongly encouraged to perform self-examinations on a routine basis and to also report in for an annual checkup. This screening normally begins in a woman’s late teen years. Around the age of 40, women are urged to begin going in for annual mammograms to help detect breast abnormalities in their early stages. Women who are at higher risk for breast cancer may, however, find their healthcare providers recommending mammograms and other screening procedures at an earlier stage.

Invasive breast cancers are diagnosed in about 246,000 patients each year in the United States. An estimated 40,000 American women die from the disease annually. Early screening has long been seen as a vital link in lowering the likelihood of cancer developing beyond a treatable stage. With that in mind, all women are encouraged to discuss their personal risk for this disease with their healthcare providers.

Women who are diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ will find that a variety of treatment options are available to them. The best route to take for treatment, however, will depend on a woman’s unique case. Those diagnosed with any form of breast cancer are also urged to discuss all treatment options, risks and potential benefits with their doctors.
