Where can I find specific information about breast cancer?

Breast Cancer Care helps anyone affected by breast cancer with information and support. Their helpline (0800 800 6000) is free, confidential and there to answer any questions about breast cancer or breast health, and as part of their helpline they also have volunteers available to provide emotional support and listen to whatever you want to talk about.

St Helens Cancer Support Group run a monthly support group specifically for breast cancer, and they are also able to provide one-to-one information and support for people affected by breast cancer. The group is held on the last Wednesday of every month from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at their office on 93 Corporation Street.

Further information about breast cancer, including symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and living with the condition can be found via the specific Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support pages.
