"Some Very Good Advice On Breast Cancer - At The Foot Of The Posting"



Cancer treatment to be available in the Island?


A new treatment which means that breast cancer sufferers will not have to travel to the UK for radiotherapy could be introduced in Jersey within the next two years.
Matthew Stephenson, consultant general and breast surgeon at the General Hospital, said that if Intrabeam radiation was introduced in Jersey, potentially it could benefit a lot of Islanders.
At the moment, Islanders undergo surgery in Jersey to remove the cancer and then have to go to the UK, often for between three to five weeks at a time, for radiotherapy.
However, a new one-off treatment could be introduced in the Island, which would remove the need for multiple radiotherapy sessions.
Around 100 Islanders every year are diagnosed with breast cancer and 60 to 70 per cent require radiotherapy. Matthew Stephenson, consultant general and breast surgeon at the General Hospital, said that if Intrabeam radiation was introduced in Jersey, potentially it could benefit a lot of Islanders.
