More recently, more sophisticated targeted treatments are being used to treat cancer that has spread beyond the breast.

Breast tissue, like the gut, has a microbiome, and understanding it could lead to a new understanding of breast cancer, say researchers at the Cleveland Clinic. Much of the research has been done on "gut" microbiomes, or bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. "However, with a 10-15% increase in the last decade, breast cancer has overtaken cervical cancer in terms of the number of cases reported", this was stated by Dr Veda Padma Priya, senior consultant, surgical oncology at a private hospital on Sunday.

"Our hope is to find a biomarker that would help us diagnose breast cancer quickly and easily", said Eng.

According to the website of the National Cancer Institute, among all form of breast cancer screening, mammography is the most sensitive form of breast cancer.

While it may be some way off, the prospect of probiotic use in breast cancer is making some interesting headway.

The team from the Cleveland Clinic in OH also looked at patients' oral rinse and urine to assess bacterial composition of these sites. It is crucial to continue efforts to bring awareness, educate, continue medical advancements and screen to continue to add to the 3.3 million breast cancer survivors that are alive today in the United States.

Breast Cancer remains the number one cancer faced by Kiwi women, and the Breast Cancer Foundation are on a mission to stop breast cancer dead in its tracks. "If you do have cancer, the sooner it's found, the more likely it is to be successfully treated". Dr Veda further said, a few decades ago, breast cancer was nearly 65%-70% patients of breast cancer were above 50 years and only 30-35% women were below fifty years of age.

Breast cancer death rates declined nearly 40 percent between 1989 and 2015, averting 322,600 deaths, according to the American Cancer Society.
