Some breast cancers detected by exam

Posted on March 17th, 2010 by

Some breast cancers are still detected as a palpable lump rather than through mammographic screening, U.S. researchers say…

 

Dr. Amy C. Degnim of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said the data suggested clinical breast examination and breast self-examination should continue to play a role in detecting breast cancer…

 

"We were a little surprised to find that the percentage of women with breast cancer who presented with a palpable lump hadn't changed much since 1990," Degnim said in a statement.
