What happens if a breast cancer is diagnosed?

If your biopsy shows a breast cancer, we will discuss your case at our weekly meeting of breast cancer specialists. All your investigations will be reviewed and the best treatment options discussed. The team will agree a recommendation.

You will then usually be seen one week after your biopsy following the next meeting, to discuss these results with you and agree an management plan together. It can be helpful to come with a family member or friend for added support at this consultation. We realise this is a daunting time and there will be a team of specialists on hand to support you. The breast care nurse team will be available and will also be in the consultation with you.

There are lots of useful information resources to assist you, some of which we hand out as leaflets in clinic. You can find out more on the websites below:
