Early Detection of Breast Cancer Saves Lives

The New England Journal of Medicine reported in October that the death rate from breast cancer fell by 24% between 1990 and 2000 for American women age 30 to 79 years. The incidence of the disease remained stable during that period. This trend has continued.

The study came from seven research centers. They concluded that almosy half the drop could be attributed to mammograms and early detection.

Soooo today is better than tomorrow.
