If any of our patients have a strong family history of breast cancer they can be referred to a special clinic that will address this.

In the meantime, in response to the news of Angelina Jolie having a recent double mastectomy, this website Cancer Research UK might be a useful place to seek some information:

You can also click on this very helpful TLC guide which holds a wealth of information related to breast screening with a useful guide to self screening with helpful videos.
