We must improve cancer screening for trans and non-binary people

Comment

Hang on a minute, cancer rates for these people should be lower than males (who are subject to male-predominant cancers) and females, who are subject to higher rates of breat and uterine cancers. They are already at lower risk, through being neither male nor female, so already have an unfair survival advantage. To do anything more for them is just unfair to those at higher risk of cancer (ie those who are male or female), and need the screening more! Think about that one!
