Breast cancer: Diagnosis and treatment

Mr Sumit Goyal, MS, FRCS, LLM (Med Law)

Mr Goyal is a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon who has worked in the field of breast surgery for over twenty years. He was appointed as a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon in Cardiff and Vale Health Board in 2003 and appointed the Lead Surgeon in 2006. He has specialised in all aspects of breast cancer management and oncoplastic breast cancer surgery, and has introduced new techniques such as Dermal Sling assisted breast reconstruction, lipofilling and fat transfer to his unit.

Mr Goyal treats approximately 150 new breast cancers every year. He also assesses and treats benign breast conditions such as harmless lumps in the breast, nipple discharge, breast pain and male breast lumps.
