A group of specialized researchers in Biolab – the Kingdom’s leading accredited diagnostic laboratory, offering more than 700 medical diagnostic services across its branches – diagnosed a 70-year-old Jordanian patient with a rare breast cancer tumor known as Breast Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma. This rare case is considered the first of its kind in the Kingdom and the 30th case diagnosed internationally. The Biolab research team who diagnosed this tumor comprised of Dr. Amid Abdelnour, CEO and Founder, Dr. Issa Ayyoub Abu Dayyeh, Microbiology and Immunology Director, Dr. Nasrat Babouq, MD, Consultant Histo-cytopathologist in cooperation with Dr. George Burghol, Head Scientist at the British National Health Services and a British research team from St Mary's Hospital in Manchester, UK.

Marking this unprecedented scientific milestone, Biolab’s CEO and Founder, Dr. Amid Abdelnour, expressed his pride for this remarkable achievement, stressing that this diagnosis is considered one of Biolab’s major accomplishments. Dr. Abdelnour noted that breast cancer ranks the first widespread type of cancer in Jordan, emphasizing that this rare type of tumors affects one of 1000 cases. He added that the tumor was surgically removed and that the patient did not require any radiation or chemotherapy treatment as the cancer cells did not spread in her body.  

It is worth noting that this research will be published in one of the most prestigious American international journals specialized in women health and breast diseases.
