Re: recall

Hi Bubbles19671


It’s understandable you feel worried about the change your breast doctor noticed at your appointment, and the recall letter since.


Following surgery for breast cancer, a number of benign conditions (not cancer) changes can occur within the breast, including those associated with scars and healing of the breast tissue.  These may mean that your mammogram looks different, but does not automatically mean that any change they can see is a worrying one.


If necessary, your team will assess you in a similar way to before at your breast clinic appointment

You may find it helpful to post in a different area of the forum where others have had similar experiences and are able to provide support.


Do also call our Helpline if you would like to talk through how you are feeling with a member of our team or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.


The number is 0808 800 6000 (Text relay prefix 18001).


Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.


Best wishes
