Fighting cancer would ideally be accomplished by preventing the onset of                              
the disease. For breast cancer, the most widespread cancer among women,                                      
prevention in its proper sense is not foreseen as its causes remain
undiscovered. Around 350,000 new breast cancer cases are found and
130,000 women die of breast cancer in Europe every year. This amounts
to 26% of all new cancer cases among women and over 17% of cancer                     
deaths. Currently, the primary goal of fighting breast cancer is its early
detection in order to prevent a fully developed stage of the disease.
