OMC Menopause Cafe (Dec 2022) – Menopause and Breast Cancer
OMC’s Menopause Cafe on Fri 9th December with Miss Cheryl Lobo, a Consultant Breast and Oncoplastic Surgeon, covered the important topic of breast cancer.
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 were delighted to have Miss Cheryl Lobo host. Cheryl is 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.
OMC’s Menopause Cafe is open and free to attend for all OMC Patients, friends, and family but numbers are capped at 50.
