The world is full of illness. Some are less serious than the other but when we hear of cancer, it is never light. Cancers are very serious and it can lead to unwanted deaths and losses. Here in Singapore, the leading cause of death among women is breast cancer.
In 2012, there were more than 1 million cases of breast cancer diagnosed around the world. This made breast cancer the most common cancer diagnosed among women. Here in Singapore, from 2010 to 2014, there were about nine thousand cases of women with breast cancer.
The new breakthrough is released by scientists of Science, Technology and Research on October 29, 2015. They announced with enthusiasm and positivity that there are fresh ways of diagnosing at the same time treating breast cancer.
The Bioinformatics Institute scientists recognized two main classes of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC). IDC comprised eighty percent of breast cancer cases. The distinction and identification of the two main classes will enable scientists to improve their diagnosis to treatment .This simply means that it promise better outcomes.
Only scientists understand the IDC or other related things. The important thing here is we have better chances of surviving cancer with this new development and understanding. Women with breast cancer here in Singapore should stay positive and hopeful because the new discovery will be developed which will bring actual treatment strategies that can battle breast cancer.
This is good news of the patients suffering with breast cancer and their family. We will have to wait and see where this discovery will lead us. We can only hope and pray.
