Early Detection of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer caught early means that the breast cancer has not spread. It’s localized to the breast tissue, explains Dr. Kate Lampen-Sachar, Diagnostic Radiologist with Miami Cancer Institute. When breast cancer spreads usually the first place it goes to is the lymph nodes under the armpit before it travels elsewhere in the body, the expert describes. The doctor explains with a digital imaging how a healthy breast looks and also explains how cancer is being detected and how it can spread.
