Late diagnosis of breast cancer rises as NHS struggles in Covid crisis
26th November 2021 - The Guardian
Soaring numbers of women are being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, undermining their chances of survival, because of Covid’s disruption of NHS care, a charity has warned.
The number of women being diagnosed with the disease at stage 4 is as much as 48% higher in some months than expected, with the pandemic to blame, says Macmillan Cancer Support.
At the same time, fewer women are being confirmed as having breast cancer at stage 1, when their chances of responding well to treatment and living longer are much higher.

These are the words I said to my GP on the December 2020 when I finally went to see her.
