I am a cancer patient, who , I am pleased to say, is in remission, but have six monthly check ups at the Wansbeck Clinic. Recently I discovered a lump in my lower back, as you can imagine I was concerned that the cancer had returned. I contacted the receptionist for the clinic ( who does a fantastic job under pressure and is always pleasant), to see if I could get an appointment to see my consultant re the lump. She spoke to the consultant who made me an appointment to attend the clinic 10 am the next day. I was seen by a consultant from the Wansbeck clinic who explained that they thought it was a fatty lump which is not cancerous, but to confirm arranged for me to have an ultrasound scan straight away. It was confirmed that the lump was not cancerous, to my obvious relief. To find a lump when you have not been diagnosed with cancer is scary enough, but I think when you know you have cancer and find a lump it's really scary. I cannot thank my consultants enough, the quick diagnoses and treatment I received, excellent, second to none. Thank you again Julie Peacock - a very happy and satisfied patient
