"Metastases cause about 90% of deaths from solid tumors and are very clinically diverse [1]. Metastasis occurs when cancer cells adapt to the microenvironment of an organ distant from the primary tumor and develop secondary tumors. Clinical observations indicate that certain organs are more susceptible to metastases. The specificity of the tumors for particular distant targets is known as tissue tropism. "

"The story is based on new research that compared an existing method for predicting cancer recurrence, the Oncotype DX recurrence score (RS), and an adapted version that also took other clinical data into account.

Saudi- EP has highest number of breast cancer cases - MENAFN

Saudi- EP has highest number of breast cancer cases - MENAFN | Breast Cancer News | Scoop.it
(MENAFN - Arab News) One out of every eight women in the Eastern Province has breast cancer, said Omar Bayamin, medical technical director at Prince S
Curated by A4BC.ORG's insight:

This article shows how far behind they are in Saudi Arabia with breast cancer. They are also quoting the misleading figures of cure rates when it says in the article "An early detection of the disease can pave the way in 95 percent of all cases to an effective and successful treatment." Even though they are so far behind in awareness at least this type of campaign is allowing more women to get treatment. I think in Saudi Arabia it is always better to try to catch the disease before it's caught at Stage IV. We forget how different treatment and awareness about breast cancer is in other countries.
