Listen Surgery can be a treatment option to stop cancer from spreading to other parts of the body. Some surgeries, like a mastectomy, involve removing a part of the body that is affected by cancer. Prostheses are man-made substitutes that can replace a part of the body and can help individuals feel and look more comfortable. Our Prosthesis Clinic aims to empower women diagnosed with cancer to look and feel their best during treatment and beyond; to cope with dignity and confidence. During an individual minute fitting, women can try on mastectomy bras and breast prostheses with assistance from a trained fitter. An oncology social worker is also present to provide support.
