Sir: I am told by medical acquaintances that contrary to Dr Phil Hammond's point of view, the problem in Britain is that women's breasts are very rarely examined by doctors of either sex, and that as a result our breast cancer fatality rate is among the highest in the developed world.

I am sure that my friends and relatives who have endured breast cancer and its treatment would have opted for frequent examinations by horny young doctors for the chance of earlier detection of their illness, particularly the one who is now walking around with one breast and no hair.
