New multigene breast cancer test could speed up accurate diagnosis for women, evidence suggests

Every breast cancer tumour is unique. Accurate subtyping of breast cancer tumors is essential to determine the type of treatment that the disease is likely to respond to. This has become especially important in hard to diagnose triple negative and HER2-low cases where new immunotherapy drugs have been recently approved for use.
