Halo Pap Test Offers Early Breast Cancer Detection

CBS-4, Boston, November 15, 2005
The new Halo Pap Test for the breast is now available to help doctors identify breast disease up to eight years earlier than a lesson might be found on a mammogram. Doctors collect fluid from the breast duct to help identify abnormal cells. Some experts believe that this new non-invasive test may help significantly reduce breast cancer deaths – much like the pap test has helped reduce the number of cervical cancer deaths. “The breast pap test is going to be an advance in breast cancer screenings because we’re able to detect abnormal cells very early,” says woman health specialist Dr. Rosalyn Baxter-Jones.
