New technique for breast lumps1st February 2008
A new procedure could allow women with benign breast tumours to have them frozen out by their GP and return to work on the same day.
The technique was developed by the Cambridge Design Partnership in Cambridgeshire. Dr Keith Turner, from the Partnership, said: "Many thousands of women who have non-cancerous tumours will simply be able to pop to the doctors for a 15-minute procedure which involves having a thin probe inserted into the lump which then kills it off."
