Welcome to breastspecialist.co.uk.
Professor Kefah Mokbel is a consultant surgeon specialist in the treatment of diseases of the breast, including breast cancer and cosmetic breast surgery. Soon after he started treating women with breast disease, he realised that they needed to have an up-to-date and easy-to-read guide to breast disorders to help them understand what was happening inside their own bodies.
This website aims to present women with the latest medical information regarding breast cancer and common breast conditions in a reader-friendly format.
The extensive section on breast cancer explains in simple terms how a cancer develops, how the diagnosis is made, and what treatment options are available. The issue of breast cancer screening and ways of reducing breast cancer risk are also addressed. This website goes beyond the normal topics by including sections on cosmetic breast surgery and hormone replacement therapy.
Non-cancerous breast conditions are also covered in detail, including breast lumps, breast pain, infection and nipple discharge.
The information provided in this website will enable women with breast symptoms to understand their conditions more fully, helping to alleviate any anxieties, and allowing them to actively participate in their treatment.
Professor Mokbel is grateful to his patients over the years, whose questions and pursuit of knowledge have been the main stimulus to writing this book.
With best wishes,
