Breast Cancer Awareness

October is the month we are encouraged to be more aware of Breast Cancer.

The truth of the matter is that we should be breast cancer aware every day, every week and every month.  A listener chastised Neil and Tina for leaving it so long into Octobe to talk about Breast Cancer, which is fair enough, but since we last brought up the topic of boobs, how many times have Neil and Tina done Breast Checks in the past 11 months? Listen to find out as they chat to Nurse Sarah Zee, from the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust at Treliske.


And a listener called in to say she might have missed her mammogram and how did she arrange another appointment.  To rebook a mammogram, phone 01872 252880 and speak to the Mermaid Centre.

Of course, some people are at high risk of Breast and Ovarian Cancers, through their family history. Yvonne Howells elected for surgery 4 years ago, and explained why to Neil and Tina.


There is a lot of help our there for those diagnosed, or worried about Breast Cancer.  Here are just a few links:
