Should a woman attending the breast clinic receive a cancer diagnosis, a full range of treatment can be offered by Mr McIntosh, who is fully trained and experienced in the management of both screen-detected and symptomatic breast cancer.
Surgery for breast cancer can either be with a lumpectomy (breast conserving surgery), or with a mastectomy (removal of the whole breast). Following mastectomy, Mr McIntosh is able to provide a range of surgical options for reconstruction of the breast if this is desired. This can be done either at the time of mastectomy or at a later date.
If additional treatment, such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy are required (either before or after surgery) then these can be arranged through the team of specialist Consultant Oncologists who work with Mr McIntosh.
During treatment for breast cancer, Mr McIntosh works with a team of specialist Breast Care Nurses to support and guide women through what can be a difficult and distressing process. The Breast Care Nurses can provide information, support and counselling through all aspects of the treatment journey.
