Public Health England will be re-running the Be Clear on Cancer
breast cancer in women over 70’
campaign from 22 February to the end of March 2018
Older women with breast cancer have poorer relative survival rates, highlighting the necessity to improve early diagnosis for this group. Breast cancer risk increases with age and getting older is the second biggest risk factor after being female, yet awareness of age-related risk is poorly understood across the UK. Given the increased risk faced by older women, it is clear that symptom awareness and promoting prompt presentation with symptoms are critical.
