Breasts Laid Bare

A public lecture on the iconography and history of breasts and the treatment of breast cancer through the ages.

Fiona MacNeill, Consultant Surgeon at Essex County Hospital will give a public lecture on the iconography and history of breasts and breast cancer awareness through the ages. She will look at the women who have made significant contributions in this field, from the martyr St. Agatha to Mrs Thatcher, who introduced the breast screening programme and the experience of modern day celebrities like Kylie Minogue.

The lecture will also look at the developments in breast cancer treatment past, present and future, with particular reference to the future of reconstructive and oncoplastic surgery and breast conservation. UK breast services are now a model for the management of all cancer, having pioneered the patient centred philosophy. With the influx of women surgeons into the speciality, and surgery in general, the holistic breast surgeon is now becoming a reality.

After the lecture there will also be an opportunity to put your questions to Fiona MacNeill.
