Healthy Living: Detecting Breast Cancer Earlier

Posted: Updated:

What if you could detect the beginnings of breast cancer years before it showed up on a mammogram? 

That's what a new test is doing.  

In today's Healthy Living, learn about the non-invasive test that has the potential to cut breast cancer rates, just like pap smears have cut rates of cervical cancer.  

Doctor Dube says women over 40 should take the test every year and get an annual mammogram.  

Women between 18 and 39 can also take the Forcyte test.  

The screening is covered by Medicare and private insurance.
