Early detection of breast cancer is important, as it is associated with an increased number of available treatment options, increased survival, and improved quality of life.
While there is no definitive method of preventing breast cancer, early detection provides the best chance of effective treatment. The goal of screening exams for early breast cancer detection is to identify breast abnormalities as early as possible.
If breast cancer is found early, there are more treatment options and a better chance for survival. Breast cancers that are found because they are causing symptoms tend to be larger and more advanced.
