The breast unit operates in collaboration with many services, and it offers high standard diagnostic and treatment procedures. Outpatient clinic activities: Breast surgical oncology; Breast plastic surgery; Medical oncology for breast cancer; Radiotherapy for breast cancer. Last year we treated nearly 605 new breast cancer cases. The waiting time between diagnosis and treatment is about 3 weeks. Two breast surgeons work in the unit and perform more than 50 surgeries per year on average. Surgery can also be offered to outpatients. The unit has a fully dedicated nurse and 8 beds.
