"Our hope is to find a biomarker that would help us diagnose breast cancer quickly and easily", said Eng.

Women who received the most aggressive treatment - a double mastectomy followed by breast reconstruction surgery - were nearly eight times more likely to miss a month or more of work than women who got a lumpectomy, the study found.

According to National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. "If you do have cancer, the sooner it's found, the more likely it is to be successfully treated".

"It worries many women I think", said Missoula resident Camill Severti. To examine how employment experiences are impacted by different types of breast cancer treatment, Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil, of the University of MI, and her colleagues surveyed women aged 20 to 79 years diagnosed with stages 0-II breast cancer as reported to the Georgia and Los Angeles SEER registries in 2014 and 2015. More than 70% of the cases present in advanced stage accounting for poor survival and high mortality. Adding, "The new test will give women more options and help them to make a more informed decision". Breast cancer continues to be the most common cancer death among women in the world. Overall, 84 percent were working full-time before their diagnosis, but only half of them had paid sick leave and just 38 percent had disability benefits.

"Prior studies have shown that most of the women who had bilateral mastectomy could have chosen lumpectomy but chose the more aggressive surgery, often out of a desire to improve peace of mind". "It is fantastic the power and the strength that women will find during their journey down a frightful path they have to take, but I just see so many people come out on the other end and they are strong, and they have defeated this darn disease and they then are able to help other people".

After getting treatment, the cancer is now under control, the official said. Another limitation of the study is that researchers lacked data on why women missed work, and it's possible some of that time wasn't related to the type of treatment they received.
