‘One in 10 women pre­sent­ing to a breast clinic may have breast can­cer – so not ev­ery lump found here, leads to the di­ag­no­sis of can­cer,’ says Prof Carmichael, so don’t let fear of find­ing out stop you at­tend­ing a screen­ing. ‘Treat­ment of breast can­cer in­volves surgery, ra­dio­ther­apy, chemo­ther­apy, anti-hor­mone treat­ments and tar­geted ones, such as Tras­tuzumab. The sur­vival rates are get­ting bet­ter all the time – there are more women alive with breast can­cer to­day then ev­ery be­fore.’
