Too Busy for Breast Cancer Screening

One in two women are increasing their risk of breast cancer by skipping regular mammograms simply because they are too busy, according to alarming new research. Breast Screen NSW recently surveyed 1000 women aged 50-74 and found half missed their regular appointment, with most citing a "lack of time" as the reason despite 95 per cent agreeing the free screening could save their life. "Twelve women get diagnosed every day in NSW and 17 a week die of breast cancer, and many of these deaths don't need to happen because screening can pick up a cancer as small as a grain of rice before it's even able to be felt," Cancer Institute of NSW deputy CEO Professor Sanchia Aranda said.

I consider breast cancer screening time well spent, particularly if it saves your life! Dr Guy Hingston.
