Christina Rees has marked the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month by reminding constituents of the importance of checking any symptoms with their GP.
Although Coronavirus affected cancer screenings programmes in Wales earlier in the year, they recommenced in June, and the Neath MP is joining force with charity Breast Cancer Now to remind constituents of the importance of checking their breasts for changes and contacting their GP if they spot anything unusual.
Christina Rees, MP for Neath, said:
“The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment. So it’s important to check your breasts regularly and see your GP if you notice a change.
“Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, cancer screening services in Wales are fully up and running again and the message is clear – if you spot any symptoms of cancer, you should contact your GP and get them checked out”.
