(NEW YORK POST) —  A new blood test could detect breast cancer in patients five years before a lump or other physical symptoms appear, says a new study out of the UK.

The information out of Nottingham University, reported in the Sunday Times of London, says the test would look for antibodies that signal tumor growth before a mass becomes visible.

Earlier detection means earlier treatment, which could possibly save thousands of lives.
