Common Benign Breast Complaints – Red Flags That Need Urgent Referral

Nexus + GP Webinar Series


Women are now very aware of breast cancer. However, many myths still perpetuate, resulting in unnecessary fear. I hope to help clarify these myths with my GP colleagues. Some common examples: Breast pain is a sign of cancer; all breast lumps need to be removed, biopsies are harmful. I’ll also share the common scenarios which can be safely follow-up in your practice: sub-cm benign nodules on US, benign microcals on MMG, FH+ but normal screening yearly.
