Women living as expats in other countries should consider getting themselves screened for breast cancer if they think they might have the disease, new research indicates.
A study undertaken by the University of Melbourne and published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention has indicated that ladies who undergo screening halve the chance of death from the illness.
Having followed about 4,000 women in Australia, it came to the conclusion that those who were screened dramatically lowered the risk of being diagnosed.
Speaking after the findings were announced, Dr Carolyn Nickson, a research fellow at the university, said: "I believe it is time to move on from the debate about whether screening reduces mortality and to instead direct research resources to help improve the program for women who choose to use it."
Women who live abroad and are aged between 50 and 69 might wish to consider looking into the disease, as this is the age at which screenings are encouraged.
