Breast cancer

Breast cancer - A new study will invite 20,000 French women to have a tailor-made screening for breast cancer, depending on the risk of developing the disease.  The idea is to set up screening, which is no longer based solely on age, but on the risk of developing breast cancer. Today, less than 50% of women aged 50 to 74 years old are able to take mammograms recommended every two years, well below the 70% European recommendations.

The disease kills 12 000 women each year in France and 92,000 in Europe.

My Personal Breast screening, will be a personalized surveillance that is no longer based solely on age, but on the risk of developing cancer. Tailor-made, with the ambitious goal of early detection of cancer in women at highest risk, and reduce the number of exams in those who are the least.
