BREAST CANCER

Actress and pop star Kylie Minogue has prompted an increase in the number of women having breast cancer screenings in Australia. Ms. Minogue discovered she had breast cancer in May and underwent surgery to have a lump removed. The media attention that followed resulted in a 40 per cent increase in the number of women being checked for breast cancer. This is according to a study by Sydney University’s Professor Simon Chapman. He said the “Kylie effect” could greatly reduce the number of breast-cancer related deaths.
