Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the UK, though it can also affect men. A breast lump is often the first symptom of breast cancer. Milton Keynes Hospital is part of the NHS Breast Screening Programme and provides free breast screening every three years for all women aged 50 or over.
Access and referrals
If your GP suspects you may have breast cancer, he/she will refer you to Milton Keynes Hospital through the urgent two week wait process via the hospital's appointments bureau.
Your first appointment will take place in the Trust's breast unit at the one-stop clinic. Patients requiring chemotherapy, active monitoring and/or palliative care can all be treated at Milton Keynes Hospital. Radiotherapy treatment for breast cancer is currently carried out at Northampton General Hospital.
