Tests To Detect Breast Cancer?
I want to ask, for the thoracic test, is there a tumor / cancer in the breast? thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are various kinds of chest or chest examinations. Starting from examinations that only use the palms, using a stethoscope, to those using x-rays, CT scans, or other tools. Especially for breast cancer, the tools commonly used are ultrasound and mammogram.
Regarding your question, it actually needs to be detailed again what test you mean. But in general, to detect breast cancer, your doctor will conclude the results from a history, physical examination, and investigations. So that through some of the tests that we mentioned above, it might be seen, but without a physical examination and previous history digging, your doctor cannot confirm whether it is cancer or not.
So our advice to you, to really know whether you have breast cancer or not, you should consult your complaint with a surgeon oncology or an obstetrician. Among the risk factors for breast cancer are:
