Free seminar: Young Women and Breast Cancer

The outcomes for young women with breast cancer are increasingly good. This presents a challenge for those involved in their treatment to consider how to provide better quality of life outcomes and the wider important issues including body image and having children.

Speakers:

Professor Michael Dixon (Professor of Surgery, Edinburgh Breast Unit): Identifying young women at very high risk, new options for treatment and reconstruction

Dr Melanie C Davies (Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, University College Hospital, London):

Fertility preservation, fertility options after treatment

Dr Alison Jones (Consultant Oncologist, The Royal Free Hospital & University College Hospital, London):

Oncological considerations of breast cancer during pregnancy and on fertility

Ms Lorraine Hathorn (Ambassador for Breast Cancer Care):

A personal perspective
