Above & Beyond

Lady McAdden provides a well woman service. We help women establish what is normal for you and what to look for. If you have any changes to your breasts or suspect any abnormality then seek advice from your GP/Doctor. In the event of a Lady McAdden Nurse finding a concern, currently they will refer you to your GP/Doctor.

The most common cancer in women is Breast Cancer. 1 in 7 women will develop Breast Cancer in their lifetime. Their risk increases with age, rising steadily from the menopause. Breast Awareness is a valuable and important part of Breast Screening.

Breast Screening is the detection of Breast Cancer at an early stage. The NHS Breast Screening 5 Point Plan for being breast aware is:

  • know what’s normal for you
  • look at your breasts and feel them
  • know what changes to look for
  • report any changes without delay
  • attend routine screening if you’re 50 or over (or 40 via Lady McAdden)

Almost half of newly diagnosed Breast Cancers are detected by the lady herself. Mammograms are important as they can indicate cancers that are too small to be felt by the woman herself or a doctor. This is why being Breast Aware is so important.

The Lady McAdden Mammogram service is currently suspended due to current Coronavirus restrictions. If you would like to be updated when we have news about this service, please fill in this form.
