Letters, calls and emails: NICE website is wrong about breast cancer

Dear Editor

I believe there is an error in the NICE website reviewed last week (GP, 13 October).

It should say ‘if there is only one relative diagnosed UNDER the age of 40’. This is based upon discussions with three units of genetics. I have written to NICE but not received a reply.
