The risk of developing various cancers has been difficult to understand for many people. There is seemingly no connection between any health conditions and the development of cancers. Fortunately an independent task force released a study this week that has some promising news about breast cancer development.
According to the research panel, patients that are given small doses of two leading breast cancer treatments are significantly less likely to develop the cancer in the future. The study specifically targeted women that were considered high risk and much to the surprise of the medical experts the drugs did in fact have a very significant impact. This is absolutely great news because many doctors are hopeful that with some more research they will be able to effectively create a vaccine of sorts. Any sort of advancement in the field is great news because this is the next step towards eliminating the risk for breast cancer.
Many doctors and cancer research organizations are very hopeful that this will turn into a viable vaccine system. There is also some evidence that suggests this type of pre-treatment may work for risk reduction in a number of other cancers as well. Multiple follow up studies are being conducted right now to determine how effective this could be.
