Breast Cancer And Surgery Part Two – Episode 9

Posted by Olivia Phillips on 02 April 2024

episode 9 - and then came breast cancer podcast

Surgery is a part of many women’s breast cancer stories and this episode puts some of your points and queries to a breast cancer surgeon who also explains why she and her colleagues make the decisions they do.

Victoria is joined by a guest who felt that before she had surgery she had no idea what the results would look like- so decided to create a resource that will help many women going through breast cancer in the future. She is also joined by a man who set up a group to help men support each other on their journeys.

Some of the guests on this podcast will put their points to a breast cancer surgeon to discuss further and from a medical perspective.


You can listen to the podcast here, or download it from all major streaming platforms including AcastSpotify and Apple Podcasts. New episodes are released every Tuesday.

If you’re considering your options for breast cancer surgery, Future Dreams has a range of support services available to you. From pre-operation checklists, to breast cancer surgery options explained by a breast cancer surgeon. Our monthly Show & Tell meetups provide opportunity for connection with those who have had mastectomies who can answer your questions based on their personal experience, and even show you what your chest might look like after your own surgery – although everybody is different, of course. We get brilliant feedback from these sessions. Click here to find out when the next is taking place.

Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone.  Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House.  We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help.
