Breast cancer

According to Cancer Research UK, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK.  It predominantly affects women but men can get breast cancer too.

The Bradbeer Unit

Croydon Health Services has the long established Bradbeer unit, a dedicated breast cancer unit.  The team see around 2500 women each year, of which approximately 250 will be diagnosed with breast cancer.  

You will be referred by your GP and all patients are offered an appointment within two weeks.

The Bradbeer Unit was designed to offer a one-stop breast clinic, this means if you are referred with suspected breast cancer you can expect to be tested and to receive your results on the same day.

In addition, the Unit works closely with a genetics service and provides a family history screening service.
