This decreases unnecessary biopsies and also anxiety.

Tanya is adamant about helping other young women to understand why it's so important to check our breasts and most importantly, KNOW HOW. One of the problems, however, is that although an MRI may find more cancer, it is also more likely to find more benign lesions leading to unnecessary biopsies.
