Breast cancer awareness rising:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A recent survey has revealed that UK women aged between 15 and 34 are most concerned about breast cancer whilst those aged 45+ seemed less concerned - despite the fact that 80% of new cases occur in post-menopausal women. However, only two thirds of the youngest women (15-24) surveyed had taken steps to educate themselves about breast cancer compared with 90% of those participants aged between 45 and 54. 40% of men surveyed registered concern and one third had taken steps to become more aware of breast cancer. Although it is the commonest form of cancer in women, some 300 men are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The survey was conducted by pharmaceutical company Bioenvision and NOP World to coincide with October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
