Breast cancer a year-round worry
The account about Peter Campbell and his family (Expat's battle to fly dying wife home, October 14) was timely.
In October, breast cancer month, people try to paint everything pink. But afterwards, concern can fade away. I know this; we will soon mark the first anniversary of the death of my wife's mother. whose breast cancer was detected late.
Women of all ages should carry out self-examination, and if any small irregularity is seen, they should come forward at once for a mammogram.
Most doctors are compassionate and experienced and will do their best to help.
