  • Is breast screening right for you?

    Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the UK, with more than 40,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Clinical sources tell us that one in eight women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their life, a fact that makes screening so important.

    The good news is that the number of people dying from breast cancer is reducing sharply, due to a combination of improved treatments and earlier detection. Although the risk of breast cancer increases with age, about one in seven cancers are diagnosed in women under the age of 50.

    It is generally recommended that all women should have a mammogram at regular intervals. Mammograms can help spot cancer in the breast that is too small to be seen or felt. A breast cancer genetic test and a breast health risk assessment can provide added reassurance – particularly if you have a family history of breast cancer. Recent health statistics estimate that breast screening saves 1,500 lives a year.
