Researchers reveal postcode inequality in breast cancer diagnosis 

News Content

Hundreds of women with breast cancer living in England’s most deprived areas would have better survival rates if they were diagnosed at the same stage as those who lived in affluent areas. The study led by the University of Leicester, working with colleagues from Public Health England and the University of Cambridge, investigated how much of a difference late-stage diagnosis had on women from deprived areas. The research funded by Cancer Research UK and the NIHR, published in the International Journal of Cancer, highlights that important and significant improvements could be made in terms of the number of early deaths that are observed for women living in more deprived areas by concentrating on making sure these women are diagnosed earlier.
