October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, bringing increased focus on how cancer can and should be diagnosed and treated. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer survival rates are linked directly to New Jersey’s breast cancer treatment research.
In an article posted on HNGN.com, it was noted that dozens of new breast cancer drugs have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over year. Many of them have been developed in New Jersey.
According to an article posted on Daily Record.com, approximately 540,000 New Jersey women will ultimately be diagnosed with breast cancer and 1,330 will die from the disease this year alone.
No matter how many improvements have been made in cancer treatment, proper treatment and recovery is dependent on correct and timely diagnosis and treatment. If your medical care provider has failed to correctly or timely diagnose your cancer, you chance of surviving breast cancer may be adversely affected.
