December's Menopause Café - Menopause and Breast Cancer
Friday 9th December (1-2pm) - Miss Cheryl Lobo
OMC Menopause Cafe - Friday 9th December (1-2pm)
Breast cancer affects 1 in 7 women in their lifetime. If detected early, survival is almost 100%. If detected late, this falls to 15%. For December’s OMC Menopause Cafe we talk about how women can take ownership of their breasts and the strategies for early detection.
For December’s Cafe, we’re delighted to welcome Miss Cheryl Lobo, a Consultant Breast and Oncoplastic Surgeon who practices at University College London Hospital and private practices at the Wellington Hospital. She specialises in the management of all aspects of breast disease with the emphasis always on survivorship and the needs of the modern woman. She believes in providing personalised care and clinical excellence in an efficient and approachable manner.
Cheryl regularly treats patients with breast cancer who present to the symptomatic clinic, recalled through breast screening or come from a high-risk family background. Oncoplastic trained, she combines the latest plastic surgery techniques with breast cancer surgery to give both the best cancer treatment and best cosmetic outcome.
At the Breast unit at the Platinum Medical Centre, their strength lies within the excellence of their clinical team and state of the art technology enabling them to deliver for all breast care needs.
OMC’s Menopause Cafe is open and free to attend for all OMC Patients, friends, and family but numbers are capped at 50 so please register early to avoid disappointment.
