Early Stage Breast Cancer DEFINATELY NOT a Death Sentence: Study: – THURSDAY, Aug. 20, 2015 – – Only 3 % of women identified as having an early stage of breast cancer will die of their disease within twenty years, and more intense treatment will not improve that high survival rate, a new study suggests. ‘The good news is that death is pretty rare,’ said study first writer Steven Narod, director of the Familial Breast Tumor Research Device at Women’s College Analysis Institute, in Toronto.This is considered by specialists an obstetric epidemic. 1.1 million of these fragile new born babies die as a result, and even those that survive can suffer lifelong disabilities. Further many of these babies are born in Africa and Asia the record adds. The WHO defines a preterm birth as before completion of the 37th week of being pregnant. Great preemies are born before 28 weeks. The report, 3 years in the making, is the first to compare premature birth rates in 184 countries.
