When it comes to diagnosing and treating breast cancer, it is of the utmost importance that this is discovered and treated within the shortest time frame possible to ensure the best outcome. Over the years there have been great medical advancements in the diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer. However, the outcome is still very much reliant on whether the medical professional in charge of your care ensures that you receive the correct scans and treatment within an appropriate time frame.

Currently, routine breast cancer screenings are offered once every three years to women aged 50 to 70 in England. In addition to this, any women outside of this age bracket should expect to receive a Mammogram (breast scan) within 6 months after speaking with their GP.

It is the duty of GPs and Hospitals to ensure that the correct scans and treatment are carried out appropriately but this is not always the case.

In some cases, medical mistakes can lead to missed screenings and delayed diagnosis for breast cancer which can cause women to undergo more invasive surgery than would have been necessary had the diagnosis been picked up sooner or in some occasions, the delay can be fatal.
