The cure for breast cancer, the most common among women, has taken some very important steps in recent years to the point where nearly 90 percent of patients are able to overcome the disease. The improvement in diagnostic techniques and treatments are behind the increase in the survival of patients. This was presented this Friday at the penultimate conference of the second edition of the ‘Science and Health’ cycle, organized by the Unicaja Foundation and SUR.

On this occasion, the prestigious oncologist and emeritus professor of Medicine at the University of Valencia, Ana Lluch, and the Galician singer Luz Casal participated. Both have conveyed a positive message to the people who were in the Unicaja assembly hall on Acera de la Marina and have said that we must banish the fear of breast cancer and try to face the disease with a positive spirit.
