Hello lovely ladies
I was wondering if anyone knows what the best NHS clinic is for cancer treatment?
I am a young woman of 32. Less than a month ago I found a tiny lump in my right breast. I thought I should get it checked, just in case. I never imagined that in three weeks I would be standing in a doctor's office hearing how losing my breast might be my only option... if there is any chance whatsoever of saving my breast, I need to make sure I take it.
I've been seeing someone at Homerton Hospital but I would like a second opinion before agreeing to a mastectomy. I've only been diagnosed with DCIS and I'm desperate to be able to have at least a nipple-sparing mastectomy (which I wasn't offered).
Where would you recommend I should go in London?
Thank you so much!
Hi Axelle, sorry to hear about your diagnosis but great that you found it and did something about it so you’ve caught it early. I don’t think you can go wrong with the Royal Marsden, either in Chelsea or Sutton. They only treat cancer patients which is helpful during COVID times, and have a fantastic reputation for research and groundbreaking treatments. Loffie x
I second Loffie above, I also had treatment through Royal Marsden in Kingston, Sutton and Chelsea and they were really great all round, not perfect but I don't think anywhere is! You'll be in good hands there.
