Improving breast cancer screening

Approximately 60,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year in France. Care has advanced and nearly eight in 10 women are still alive over the age of 20. One in twelve women will get breast cancer. Obviously, the key is prevention. We can cure twice as many cancers with early detection. This is the message that Dr. Thomas Frederic Moreau, an oncologist at St Jean’s Clinic in St Dolchard wants to convey: “ It’s a cancer that is cured in nine out of ten cases, if caught early enough. Therefore this diagnosis needs further improvement. Even if the results of treatment are convincing, it should not be assumed that it is a non-serious disease.” Breast cancer causes more than 12,000 deaths a year. So we should not be an ostrich by ignoring the examinations that are carried out from the age of 50: it is recommended to have a mammogram every two years, and even after the age of 75.
