Fund regular breast screenings from age 18

Petition Details

I would like the Government to fund the NHS to offer regular breast screenings as they do for over 50s, to women aged 18 and over.

Additional Information

After finding a lump on my breast and being referred to the breast clinic I was told it could be up to a 6 month wait because my case was classed “non urgent” due to my age. Cancer does not discriminate. There are also cases of women having to beg to be referred just to the breast clinic only to find out their cancer has unfortunately spread and who have become terminally ill. If women like these had been offered a regular breast screening earlier, they could have had such a different outcome.
