Australian cancer rates expected to rise by 10pc Read more
Linda Stinson, the president of the Women’s Cancer Campaign, said: “We know from the past decade of research that breast cancer is the UK’s deadliest disease. Breast cancer kills nearly 400,000 women every year and in 2016 only one in 10 women with cancer were alive when the cancer came to them. But it’s a fact that the government has missed an opportunity to make sure women don’t lose hope and go straight to the doctor if they really need to.”
In June last year, the government’s health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, was forced to acknowledge that breast c온카지노ancer had become one of Britain’s most deadly diseases, with just seven women dying every day. But the포커 의 신 figure rose by 22% between January 2014 and November 2016, with more than 2,800 cases diagnosed compared to 2,600 a decade earlier. Breast cancer had an overall survival rate of only 20%, a far cry from the 60% recommended in 2005.
Speaking last month in London, Hunt said: “When you look at some of the evidence for the disease being less deadly to women, to girls and women in particular… it might well be that it’s a very complex disease that is not well understood. And as we learn more about it – this is not the only disease out there in terms of impact and th여수출장안마 여수출장샵e disease it may actually lead to, that it’s a disease that some women are just having a hard time understanding.”
He added: “In some ways the message that I want to send out to the public about breast cancer is that there is no doubt that breast cancer is a much less serious disease today than it was 10 years ago. It is more treatable now.”
The Government’s own figures showed that in 2015, the first four months of the year, 1,739 women had their cases confirmed, but only 30% were admitted to hospital.
