Women with disabilities may be missing out on cancer screening

Research from the University of Oxford published recently in the British Journal of Cancer has shown that women with disabilities are a third less likely to participate in breast cancer screening and a quarter less likely to take part in bowel cancer screening compared to women reporting no disabilities. The Million Women Study, a collaborative project between Cancer Research UK and the National Health Service, found that women with disabilities that affected eyesight, mobility and the ability to take care of themselves were the least likely to take part in cancer screening. eCancer News, 29/9/17
