One size doesn’t fit all
Diagnosis of breast cancer is not always a “black and white” straight forward process, and requires not just knowledge but experience. Sometimes a breast symptom such as pain can lead to investigations which may lead to an incidental finding of cancer, even in the breast with no symptoms.
Similar issues arise as to the difference in body types and skin quality from person to person.
This is where Bespoke Breast Care is so important. We aim to achieve the best possible work up of your breast health whether you present with a breast symptom or just for aesthetic improvement reasons.
If a procedure is required and involves a cancer diagnosis, it is important to be aware of the implications of further treatment, such a course of radiation, and how that may affect the aesthetic outcome. This will determine which surgical option is the best for the most favourable oncological as well as cosmetic end result.
This is how Dr Yap, Specialist Breast Surgeon, manages every patient’s breast presentations from the outset – One size does not fit all…..Bespoke Breast Care.
