Cancer Malpractice Lawyer — Breast Cancer Detected Better with Ultrasound after Mammogram

 In an article published recently in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers found that 28% more cases of breast cancer were detected when women received breast ultrasound after mammography.  Most of the additional cases of breast cancer that were found with ultrasound after mammography were small invasive cancers that had not yet spread to the lymph nodes. If you have any questions about the value of ultrasound plus mammography in your case, you should discuss this recent study with your doctor.
