Any cancer diagnosis no doubt comes as a shock, however, knowing that you have a professional and comprehensive medical team behind you every step of the way to ensure you receive the best possible care will help ease your mind.

Cancer is a disease of the cells in your body; the basic building blocks that make up your tissues and organs. The body constantly makes new cells to help us grow, replace worn-out tissue and heal injuries. Sometimes cells become abnormal and keep growing and may turn into cancer. In solid cancers, such as breast cancer, the abnormal cells form a mass or lump called a tumour.

Educating yourself about breast cancer is important for finding and treating it early because it is a serious illness that affects many.
