Breast cancer patient: I was over-treated for cancer

The evidence for breast cancer screening in the UK is being reviewed amid controversy about the measure's effectiveness.

The NHS says screening saves lives, but other researchers have argued that it may cause more harm than good.

Miriam Pryke says she had surgery for breast cancer after under going screening.

She later discovered that her type of cancer did not always lead to serious symptoms and believes she was "over-treated".
