Breast Cancer Fight: Dr Celene Ng, Consultant, NUH Breast Care Centre

Finally after 2.5 weeks, I saw my breast care specialist, Dr Celene Ng, at NUH Breast Care Centre. She seemed friendly and cheerful.

Dr Celene read my Radlink scan results and physically examined my breasts. She told me to do the biopsy on my lumps in my left breast so that we have a better idea of what we are dealing with.

A biopsy result can help determine whether the cells are cancerous. If the cells are cancerous, the results can also determine how aggressive the cancer is, aka the cancer's grade. 

Dr Celene couldn't go as far as to say not to worry, but tried to assure me that only 10-20% of biopsy results turn out to be cancerous. 

After seeing her, the nurse helped me to make the earliest appointment available for a biopsy on Tue 13 Sep 2022 at NUH Breast Care Imaging.

It was another long wait, but as the doctors did not seem to think my case was in urgent need for treatment, I trusted their judgement and waited patiently for my next medical appointment too. 

Dr Celene Ng first consultation cost: S$126.26
