Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is the breast cancer awareness month. Data has shown there has been a reduction in presentations of women with breast cancer during the pandemic hence we really want to encourage patients to contact the surgery and request an appointment if they have concerns. Most breast lumps turn out to be benign, but if it does turn out to be something of concern, the sooner it is identified the better.
