More controversy about cancer screening can be found in the British Medical Journal – Why cancer screening has never been shown to save lives and what we can do about it. ‘Vinay Prasad and colleagues argue that reductions in overall mortality should be the benchmark and call for higher standards of evidence for cancer screening’
Vinay Prasad, http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.h6080
Also a local radio comment about screening can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03cg3lb#play. It starts at about 1 hour 10 mins, Anne Mackie at 1 hr 14mins and Professor Susan Bewley at 1hr 18mins.
