MONITOR YOUR MOOBS AND CHECK YOUR BOOBS
Joanna Franks gives candid and straight-forward guidance on what you need to know about breast health. Early detection of a potential health problem is supportive to early resolution and, in many cases, less invasive treatment.
99% of breast cancer cases relate to women, with 19% of cases in the under 50 age-group. However, breast cancer doesn’t only affect women; 1% of cases are found in men. Even though the bias is towards women, this is an all-inclusive talk, as early detection of a health problem is often first noticed by a partner.
Joanna Franks works as a Consultant General Surgeon, specialising in breast health. She graduated from Imperial College, from which she gained a first-class BSc in Pathology with Basic Medical Science. Her Higher Surgical Training was undertaken at the London Deanery, UCLH’s Oncoplastic Breast Unit and Macmillan Cancer Centre. Miss Joanna Franks also has a Master’s Degree in Medical Education, which she puts to broad use as a standard-setter and examiner for a variety of Medical Schools and Universities.
