Welcome to the Cambridge Breast Unit

The purpose of the unit is to see patients with specific breast problems, determine an accurate diagnosis and discuss any subsequent treatment that might be necessary, all with the minimum of delay.

We recognise that this is a particularly anxious time for you. You can be assured that your visit will be made as pleasant as possible. Please do not hesitate to ask any member of staff for information or assistance during your visit.
