Quotes

Charity director James Jopling said: "This study provides some useful insights as women over 70 were not included in the original breast screening trials on which modern screening programmes are based."
"We are very disappointed by (this) news and know that it is a huge blow for women with HER2+ advanced breast cancer" said Mia Rosenblatt, head of policy and campaigns at Breast Cancer Campaign
Eluned Hughes, head of public health at UK charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer said: "Double mastectomies are not routinely offered to women with breast cancer in the UK unless they have a family history of the disease or a high risk of recurrence, as outside of these groups there is no evidence to suggest that this would be of benefit."
Martin Ledwick, the head information nurse at Cancer Research UK, said: "In the UK, a double mastectomy is not routinely offered to women with the most common forms of breast cancer when it's only in one breast. Usually women are offered surveillance with regular mammograms after their surgery."
