"It helps detect breast cancer and cervical cancer in the early stages, when the diseases are easiest to treat". Most research has been done on the "gut" microbiome, or bacteria in the digestive tract. A diagnosis of breast cancer can be frightening and the treatment gruelling. Developed by researchers, including those from University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, the test looks at 18 genetic variants, in the blood or saliva, known to affect the chances of getting breast cancer. Their support is free of charge and available in their Breast Cancer Haven centre - which is as far away from a hospital environment as you can imagine.

"To my knowledge, this is the first study to examine both breast tissue and distant sites of the body for bacterial differences in breast cancer", said co-senior author Dr. Charis Eng.

Eng says the hope is to eventually use microbiomics before breast cancer forms, and then to prevent cancer with probiotics or antibiotics. And still every year around 11,500 women die of breast cancer in the UK. As per the data provided by the hospital, 120 patients underwent surgery for breast cancer in the hospital in the fiscal 2016/17. 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 "conquerors" and their families in addition to large number of students from old city participated in the run, expressing solidarity with the Pink Ribbon campaign. "If you do have cancer, the sooner it's found, the more likely it is to be successfully treated". Center for Disease Control and Prevention's latest U.S. Cancer Statistic Report showed New Jersey's cancer rates were higher than the national average, but due to access of treatment has fewer deaths from cancer.
