We provide a first class breast surgery service at Warrington and Halton Hospitals. This is mainly based at Halton General Hospital, although some complex surgery work takes place at Warrington Hospital.
The main work of the breast surgery team is to treat patients with breast cancer. The first type of treatment for breast cancer is usually surgery. The type of surgery depends on the type of breast cancer a patient has.
Surgery is usually followed by chemotherapy or radiotherapy or, in some cases, hormone or biological treatments. Again, the treatment you will have depends on your type of breast cancer.
