Too Much Breast Cancer Screening?

I came across an article last week about screenings for breast cancer in the UK and whether they cause unnecessary treatment for some women. The recommended screening in the UK is once every three years for women between the ages of 50 and 70. I would recommend reading this very interesting article, which can be found here.

On a day where healthcare is at the forefront of many people’s vote, it is fascinating to see a small glimpse into the healthcare system of a different country and how it may effect breast cancer screening and treatment.
