Why BreastDefense?

BreastDefense answers a very simple but fundamental question. Is this tumor an indolent lesion, or an invasive breast cancer? This is a question that no other test can reliably answer. For breast cancer, the most common screening method - mammography - is alarmingly inaccurate. The New England Journal of Medicine estimates 31% of all breast cancer cases may be misdiagnosed.

BreastDefense does not rely on images, it is a lab developed molecular test.

Thousands of women are being misdiagnosed.

This needs to change.

With a simple blood draw, BreastDefense aims to distinguish benign and malignant tissue with 99% accuracy.

The Harm of Over-Diagnosis

What many women don't realize is the potential harm of over diagnosis, not to be confused with false positives. It is when a mammogram detects non-invasive or benign cancer which is unlikely to cause a problem. Currently, there is no way to tell, which can lead to unnecessary treatment.
