Widen the age range for NHS breast cancer screening and assessment
background
Sweden, Australia, Japan and the U.S start screening women at the age of 40 and have a better breast cancer survival rate than the UK. A recent poll (breast cancer sufferers aged 20 to 70+yrs) revealed 207 out of 208 people felt the age range for breast screening in the UK should be widened.
additional details
15% of the poll group were not forwarded to an appropriate consultant when they expressed concerns about their breasts to their GP. A recurring explanation – they were too young. Breast cancer screening is about detecting cancer at an early stage, before there are any symptoms – or even worse, metastases. While this might not prevent the disease, it can help improve the chance of survival because a small, locally growing lesion is easier to treat than an invasive cancer. – Siemans Healthineers
