Breast cancer becomes the leading cause of death for women. The researchers tell that breast cancer screening is a prominent and easy way to detect cancer in women at a very early stage. Even this breast cancer screening so compelling, then why the women are neglecting to follow up their appointment with the doctors. The recent report that gets updated most recently shows that the low attendance of women at screening clinics is a significant cause of increased rate of death from it.
At this, the health official says that this attendance can only get improved when the women will get guided about the same and will make able to see the positive aspects of this breast cancer screening. The main reason for this negligence by women is calling to be the Mammograms that is unpleasant for them.
Another reason is the embarrassment which the women feel while their breast gets squashed between two metal plates. This is an uncomfortable thing for women to get tested whether they are diagnosed with it or not. Imperfectness of the National Breast Screening Programme is also an influencing cause for the women to avoid such test.
The update that has come before that there is three surgery, the women undergo are not necessary. This additional screening takes place when the lump appears to be cancer but is not at the time of surgery. So to be safe from the risk of “overdiagnosis”, the woman is trying to keep themselves away from these tests. When the health officials have been asked about the same they tell, that some women often missed their appointment because of their tight schedule and then take it as a load to reorganise it. Well, such negligence can let you face a dangerous situation that will be hard to cope up with, according to the health official.
