The surgeon who performed the procedure urged all women to screen any lumps found on their breasts.

The surgical team at Tawam Hospital, an Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) facility, on Wednesday conducted a tumorectomy on a patient suffering from breast cancer.

The complex procedure was successful and involved the removal of a massive 2.5-kilogram, 20-centimetre-diameter tumour from the patient’s breast.

Dr Moza Al Ameri, consultant breast surgeon, led a team of surgeons who performed the procedure.

The 44-year-old patient did not have a history of any other illnesses and led a healthy lifestyle. Although the patient sensed the presence of a tumour several months ago, she was hesitant to undergo an examination at the hospital.

Dr Al Ameri urged all women to screen any lumps found on their breasts, especially if a tumour is suspected of being malignant or when symptoms related to breast cancer start to appear. She reassured the community that medical treatment of the disease was readily available, and encouraged women to conduct examinations, as early diagnosis greatly increases recovery rates.
