British Asian women ignoring cancer
British Asian women are not spotting the early signs of breast cancer, according to the findings of a new study.
Genesis, a cancer prevention charity, found Asian women are only half as likely as non-Asians to attend live-saving screening tests.
Nighat Awan's mother died of breast cancer at the age of 51. She said her mother delayed potentially live-saving treatment by ignoring the early symptoms of the disease.
