Watch the video: How to do a breast examination
Jenny Rusby, Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon at The Royal Marsden, demonstrates how to do a breast examination
Around 1 in 10 women who attend The Royal Marsden diagnosis and assessment clinics, held daily at Sutton and three times a week at Chelsea, are found to have cancer; 9 out of 10 women receive positive news of no cancer being found. However, Jenny Rusby, Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon at The Royal Marsden, stresses that if a woman finds a lump it needs to be checked. If a woman does receive a breast cancer diagnosis, the earlier the lump is found and assessed, the better the chances of successful treatment and ultimately survival.
