With a 5 year survival rate at 91%, getting checked for early breast cancer can save your life
Every day 50 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and 8 women die from the disease.
Getting tested can be the difference between life and death: the best time to cure breast cancer is when it is detected early, before it's spread to other parts of the body. A/Prof Elgene Lim talks about the use of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to screen breast cancer, and why it is recommended in combination with biannual mammogram.
