This is awesome. I have lost both of my grandmothers and my mother to breast cancer. I know my chances of getting the disease is about 100%. To have a test that can detect it before a mammogram would be extemely beneficial to any woman more so those with a family history. Those who have been fortunate enough to not know anyone with breast cancer does not know how horrible the treatments can be. I am scared to death that one day it will be me on the recieving end of a Dr telling me I have cancer.

It certainly is interesting, but the word I read there was "lab," not "clinical trial," much less "FDA approval."

I hope they can do this. It was a blood test (PSA) that caught my BIL's aggressive prostate cancer before it spread.

Having had breast cancer, I would still do both, but we need all the tests we can have.
