Dr GhafoorBreast Cancer Awareness Session

On 2nd March 2009, Dr Ghafoor, our trainee FY2 doctor arranged a Breast Cancer awareness session with Vanessa Hickson, Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist with an interest in Breast Care from Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.


Are you worried about Breast Cancer?

  • Do you know anybody who suffers from Breast Cancer or has a relative/friend who does?
  • Not sure what youíre looking for on self examination?
  • Are you on Hormone Replacement Therapy?
  • Have you suffered from Breast cancer?

If any of the above apply to you (and even if they donít) then watch the videos below and learn for yourself the latest information on how you can look after yourself and be more aware of this condition. You never know Ė it might just save a life!


If patients do have any concerns whatsoever then please contact your Practice to make an appointment to see a GP.

Introduction by Dr Ghafoor

Self Breast Examination, Treatments for Breast Cancer and the Role of the Specialist Breast Cancer Nurse


Further information about Breast Cancer is available here from NHS Choices

Also you can see the Map of Medicine pathway which is the knowledge management tool showing the latest evidenced based medicine on how to assess and treat suspected breast cancer and some of the issues you may wish to consider with your clinician as you decide further management and what choices you may have.

Get access to your GP electronic health record so that you can check when your last mammogram was and the result and also see when you are next due. If you have breast cancer then you should also get access to your records so that you can keep a closer eye on your health and help to monitor it better. For further information please click here

Please note: We are aware that the quality of the video recordings shown are of fairly poor quality, however we feel that the information provided is invaluable.
