Breast Cancer testing guidelines 20 years out of date

National News

Breast cancer testing guidelines are twenty years out of date– that’s according to a new study. The current guidelines for genetic testing, limit the number of women who can get tested. The result is, patients without testing may not get the appropriate treatment for their cancer — which could be a matter of life or death.
The study says the data supports one clear guideline — that all breast cancer patients should receive genetic testing.
