Prophylactic mastectomy

Last reply: 1 month ago

I am currently on the public waiting list for a Prophylactic mastectomy. I am just wondering if there is anywhere that this can be done privately.
Many thanks

Hi Harris, 

Thank you for contacting us and I hope that you are keeping well.  We would recommend to speak with your surgeon or clinic in the hospital where the surgery is planned and they should be able to advise where it is available privately.  We would also recommend to contact your insurance company to ensure this procedure is available under your policy.

 Kind regards,

 Cancer nurse
