Today, like every other day in Australia:
- 40 women were diagnosed with breast cancer
- Most were aged between 40 and 69 years
- Whilst there is an 89% chance of surviving five years after diagnosis, another 7 died
- Earlier detection through regular mammograms improves treatment outcomes.
Regular screening is essential as it can often detect a cancer before it is felt or noticed.
