How Early is Early?

When we hear that someone has been diagnosed with breast cancer the first question is usually, "Was it found EARLY?"

Unfortunately, most breast cancer is in the body five to eight years before it can be detected through current methods.

How early is early enough?

Today, there is a new opportunity to reset what "early" is. Science and technology are coming together to create the venue for discovery of a new test that would detect breast cancer at its earliest stages, possibly before a tumor has even formed.
