Warning on Cancer
Every year more than 40,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in the UK. It is a disease that is one the biggest causes of early death among women and as such it's been high on the agenda for public health campaigns for nearly 20 years.
Despite this, a worrying level of ignorance has been revealed among women about who is most at risk and how to spot the all important signs and symptoms.
Campaigners must address this as a matter of urgency.
