Dr. Vidal with West Cancer Center, who has dedicated his life to research, said he didn’t want the numbers to scare people.

“Anything that brings attention to it is a plus in my book. What I don’t want to happen is for people to overreact by seeing the numbers,” he said.

Vidal explained a big part of the increase in the study comes from doctors detecting stage 0 breast cancer or abnormal cells.

Vidal also pointed out the study predicted the number of aggressive breast cancer tumors will drop by 10%, which was good news.
