Breast cancer survivor, Aurora is just one of 20,000 Australians diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
Aurora credits her survival to her treatment at the Royal Melbourne Hospital under the care of leading breast cancer experts Professor Bruce Mann and Dr Allison Rose.
Aurora was enrolled in a clinical trial combining novel magnetic resonance imaging and innovative surgical management. Dr Rose identified, and Professor Mann excised, two additional lesions which were missed using traditional mammography.
“Because of that investigation, the chances of me dying of cancer have significantly diminished.”
The Royal Melbourne Hospital provides excellent care and conducts cutting-edge research into breast cancer. We provide:
- Screening – Running the North Western Breast Screen Service for women 40 and over, which helps identify and diagnose breast cancer earlier.
- Pathology Labs and Genetics Department – helping to identify the type of cancer, whether it is genetic and if it may affect other family members.
- Extraordinary Surgeons – our surgeons are leaders in their field. They lead some of the most exciting global research today aimed at early stage treatment and reducing the need for invasive surgery.
- Trials – We enrol our patients in leading national and international research trials.
- Less Invasive Surgery – We use the latest imaging and surgical techniques to minimise the invasiveness of surgical treatment.
- Tissue Banking & Research – We collect tissue samples, enabling research for years to come.
