Preventing unnecessary chemotherapy with Mammaprint

Although medical science has improved over the years, cancer remains a terrible disease. It often requires demanding chemotherapy. This therapy is one of the most effective ways to treat cancer, despite the severe side effects it often causes. Yet, not all tumours have a malignant nature. Early-stage breast tumours, for instance, do not
always require chemotherapy. Often, hormone therapy following removal of the tumour by surgery is enough to cure the disease.
