Coping with breast cancer

Coping with breast cancer
One in nine women in the UK will have breast cancer, and around 41,000 women are newly diagnosed every year. Diagnosis is devastating, but more sophisticated treatments mean that survival rates are greatly improved, with about 76% of women surviving for five years. In spite of the many myths about breast cancer, it remains, like all cancer, a disease that comes with ageing and, while it affects younger women, more than half of breast cancers occur in women over 65.
