Breast Cancer Care Scotland
We are the only specialist UK-wide charity providing support for anyone affected by breast cancer.
We want every person affected by breast cancer to get the best treatment, information and support. We combine the personal experiences of people affected by breast cancer with clinical expertise, using this in a unique way to:
- provide information on living with and beyond breast cancer
- offer emotional and practical support through our services and Helpline
- bring people affected by breast cancer together through our services and Forum
- campaign for improvement in standards of support and care
- promote the importance of early detection.
If you have a query about breast cancer or breast health, just want to talk things through or find more support, our breast care nurses are only at the end of a telephone line.
We provide tailored information and specialist support to anyone affected by breast cancer or with queries about breast health. Callers include people who want to know more about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer; people who’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, their families and friends; and healthcare professionals.
We hope that by offering accurate information and the chance to talk openly in a safe and confidential space, our callers feel more informed, more confident about making decisions and more supported with what they are going through.
