Early Breast Cancer
With Knowledge Comes HopeStreaming Video - 2006
A woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes in the United States, but the more than two million survivors are proof that the diagnosis does not have to be a death sentence. Indeed, if breast cancer is found early, it has a cure rate of 90 percent. This FREDDIE Award winner explains the four stages of tumor properties, provides key insight into studies linking the disease to estrogen-genetic factors, and explores the new drugs, treatment benefits, and diagnostic techniques used by leading cancer centers. Most important, it espouses the need for early detection. Featured interviews include survivors and leading physicians from M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and Northwestern University.
