Breast Cancer early detection
in association with
A comprehensive, personalised and private breast screening service, designed to help worried women (and men) gain fast access to the support or peace-of-mind they need.
Early detection of breast cancer reduces the need for surgery and improves survival and quality of life. At present, routine NHS breast screening is available for women between 50 and 70 years of age. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women under 35. Breast screening involves the regular examination of a woman’s breasts to determine whether anything has changed. Because screening happens at regular intervals, if cancer develops it is likely to be detected at a very early stage when it will be most responsive to treatment. This service is available to all ages. It is never too early to know the symptoms of breast cancer, how to self-examine and how to identify changes in the breast.
BreastCheck is a nurse-led service consisting of Breast Cancer Risk Assessment (lifestyle and family history analysis), Clinical Breast Examination by a breast specialist nurse, help to self-examine and a monthly reminder plus a personalised breast screening programme. BreastCheck provides a reliable overview of current and future breast health. Clients will learn to stay alert to changes in their breasts and optimise the chance of identifying abnormalities as soon as possible.
