Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, with over 50,000 new diagnoses each year in the UK.
There are many different types of breast cancer and treatment is influenced by the type, grade and stage of disease.
Breast cancer is usually treated with surgery. This may be followed by further treatment such as chemotherapy, targeted or hormone therapies and radiotherapy.
At Nova Healthcare we offer radiotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted and hormone therapies for patients with breast cancer.
Chemotherapy, targeted and hormone therapies are delivered by our team of specialist nurses in our state-of-the-art private chemotherapy suite. We have access to the very latest chemotherapy drugs and targeted therapies, some of which may not be routinely available on the NHS.
Radiotherapy for breast cancer is delivered in partnership with the Leeds Cancer Centre and includes the latest image-guided and intensity modulated techniques.
Further information about breast cancer can be accessed through the Macmillan Cancer Care website or by downloading the booklet to the right.
