Breast Cancer

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is something no-one wants to hear.

You may feel numb, frightened, lost, alone, as if you have no-one to turn to BUT we hope these pages help you find your way through and realise that there is a whole team here at MKUH ready to care for you and support you at each stage.

Above all we want you to feel supported and re-assured too. Please do talk to one of the team if you have any concerns or any queries regarding appointments.
