As you may have seen from previous blog posts we presented our earlier report to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Breast Cancer (APPGBC) in July. Following this the APPGBC decided to hold a Parliamentary Inquiry looking at older people and breast cancer. Our new report was submitted as evidence to the APPGBC inquiry highlighting where progress has been made and where more work is needed.
Although the report only makes recommendations for England we believe the findings are applicable in Wales and Scotland too.
Researchers based at the Institute of Cancer Research have discovered a link between infertility and breast cancer in men. This could help us better understand the disease and lead to better ways to treat or prevent it.
