In early stage breast cancers most patients do not benefit from undergoing chemotherapy therefore it may be safe for them to avoid chemotherapy. Using chemotherapy can create a host of unwanted health hazards.
Possible to avoid chemotherapy?
Yes but it depends on each individual case. The question for patients and doctors is how to segregate which patients will benefit and which patients will have no benefit. The EndoPredict test from Myriad Genetics is designed specially to answer these questions. EndoPredict is recommended by nearly all leading international guidelines including NCCN (USA), ASCO (USA), ESMO (Europe), and St. Galleon (Europe). Myriad Genetics (USA, founded 1991), is globally recognized for founding BRCA testing and continuing to be the gold standard for BRCA testing.
