“Actually, no. The 'cures' pertain to more advanced cancers, and progress in that area is measured as a decline in breast cancer mortality. The data there are perfectly clear: breast cancer mortality rates have declined over recent years. The question that remains less fully resolved is: is that due to better early detection, better treatment, or both?”
