Mr Yazan Masannat
10th October 2018
I was diagnosed with breast cancer just days before my 50th birthday. Mr Masannat took over my case after my first operation ,when my previous consultant left , and our first meeting was for him to tell me that I required a further lumpectomy. Even though it was the first time he had met me, he was fully aware of my case and treated me with real care, explaining everything to me clearly. He then had the uneviable job of telling me after my second operation that the margin of clearance was still not what ARI would recommend. Despite my distress, as by that time everything had caught up with me and I was in the midst of a mini meltdown, he spent a considerable amount of time explaining all my options, reassuring me and renewing the optimism in me. Despite going from never having had any operations to having 3 in the space of 10 weeks, I felt completely safe and supported in his care.
