Over-70s targeted in breast cancer drive
8:00am Wednesday 5th February 2014 in News
A new campaign targeting women over the age of 70 to remind them about the risks of breast cancer has been launched.
In Oxfordshire in 2011, the latest figures available, 165 women over the age of 70 were diagnosed with the disease. Of them, 65 died.
Public Health England’s new Be Clear on Cancer campaign urges women to visit the doctor if they spot any changes in their breasts and to not “assume you’re past it”.
