Google AI finds breast cancer that doctors miss

You know that detecting breast cancer as early as possible is often the key to treatment and higher survival rates. So, who should you have examine those scans to see if you have cancer or not? You may assume it should be your doctor, but new studies have found that Google AI actually does a better job. It detects cancer more often than even trained human medical professionals.

Potential cancer warning signs

Different types of cancer do come with very different symptoms and warning signs, and it's important to keep that in mind if you think you may be suffering from the disease. Do not expect it to always appear exactly the same. Below are a few of the most common signs, but remember that this is not an exhaustive list.

Asymmetry is a warning sign for skin cancer

Skin cancer is a very common skin disease, and it can often be treated to prevent any long-term ramifications. It's sometimes just a simple matter of removing the cancerous spot through surgery, and the recovery time may be a few weeks with stitches. Every case is different, of course, but acting quickly is the key. You want to catch skin cancer during the early stages.

Is that cancer diagnosis accurate?

You go to the doctor and are diagnosed with cancer. You feel a whole wave of emotions, but it never occurs to you to assume that the doctor could be wrong. You trust them. You came for a professional opinion and now you have it. You've begun thinking about the next steps you'll need to take.

Experience causes medical professionals not to question mistakes

When a doctor comes up with the wrong diagnosis or fails to diagnose a clear problem, he or she may not be acting alone. This is often something of a team effort, and other members of the team may be able to catch the mistake.
