Today, our breast cancer campaign focuses on mammograms. Every woman in the UK is entitled to regular ones when they reach the age of 50, but recent figures show around one in four miss their appointment.
Maybe these figures would change if more of us knew that 1,400 lives are saved each year by mammograms. Dr Hilary speaks to us live from Guildford where we watch a demonstration of the procedure.
