In March 2011, he and a few other prominent researchers completed a study called “Management Guidelines for Breast Cancer,” published by the King Faisal Specialist Hospital. The paper is a groundbreaking study of the detailed stages of breast cancer in the body using new knowledge.

The paper focuses in part on tumor staging systems and how they provide surgeons and doctors with information on the extent of the cancer and how this information can be used to dictate treatment and help doctors develop a useful prognosis. Dr. Anwar writes in the paper that tumor staging systems also provides a useful framework for reporting treatment outcomes and permits the evaluation of the effectiveness of new treatment.

Dr. Ihab Anwar uses this breast cancer staging system to classify cancers based on T, N, and M stages. Dr. Anwar uses the letter T and a number between 0 and 4 to identify the size of a tumor and to what extent it has spread to the skin or the chest wall. High T numbers denote a larger, more dangerous tumor.

Dr. Ihab Anwar hopes that his research can curb the devastating effects of breast cancer worldwide. In 2012, 1.7 million new breast cancer cases were diagnosed.
