With all the recent negative health issues for Irish women in the media we finally have something to appreciate. Doctors have stumbled upon a new Breast Cancer Screening Test which can be easily carried out in your local GP’s surgery. Unlike the current method of taking a biopsy, it consists of a simple blood test instead which is far more appealing then the alternative.
As with a lot of medical breakthroughs this new Breast Cancer Screening Treatment came about by accident by researchers in Dublin City University. This is potentially great news for women all over the world as it can give a very early warning signal which is one of the most important tools when trying to treat any type of Cancer. The new Test, which has just been patented works by checking for very low levels of a protein in the blood which is an early warning for Breast Cancer.
While the new treatment is well on the way it will not be available until further testing has been completed as well as checking to see if this method could be used when trying to detect other types of Cancer.
