Breast cancer warning

Women in Gloucester are the least likely to get screened for Breast Cancer.

That is according to NHS Gloucestershire, who are looking into why.

Overall uptake of breast screening in Gloucestershire is significantly higher than the national average, but women is some areas are not coming forward.

The research will explore how aware women are about the breast screening programme and some of the reasons why they might not take up the opportunity to get screened.

Dr Sola Aruna, Consultant in Public Health at NHS Gloucestershire said:

'Screening helps detect cancers at an early stage, resulting in any problems being diagnosed and treated sooner. It is estimated that that out of every 500 women screened for breast cancer, one life will be saved'.

'Overall uptake of breast screening in Gloucestershire is very good; but we want to make sure that all eligible women in the county take up the opportunity to get screened. We need to understand why some women aren't attending for screening, and what we can do to change this'.
