Have you heard that “CellSearch” blood test predicts the occurrence of breast cancer?
This is an awesome breakthrough because early detection is the key to stopping breast cancer. I lost my aunt to this disease and am glad to see progress in early diagnosis.
Many have seen their near and dear ones suffering due to this disease. It takes a lots of emotional support factor to make the patients feel normal. They always think that someone is neglecting them. But ladies overcome all these factors.

Here we go again! The parallels to the PSA test are eerie. Over 30 years ago PSA was welcomed as the potential savior for men. Prostate cancer would be detected EARLY, treated, and its scourge eliminated.
Fast forward: today anti-PSA screening papers abound. PSA is charged with detecting cancers that, if left alone, would never bother a man! The USPSTF has officially recommended against PSA screening.
