Breast Cancer Now responds to new research exploring if AI tool can predict side effects risk from surgery or radiotherapy

Dr Simon Vincent, director of research, support and influencing at Breast Cancer Now, said:

"With over 55,000 people being diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK, research looking at how we can improve treatments is urgently needed.


"This exciting project will explore whether using AI could enable people with breast cancer to receive more personalised care and support that helps minimise side effects, such as chronic arm swelling (lymphoedema), after surgery and radiotherapy.


"This research is in its early stages and more evidence is needed before we can consider whether or not the AI tool could be used in medical settings, and we look forward to seeing results from the trial.


"Anyone affected by breast cancer can speak to Breast Cancer Now’s expert nurses by calling our free helpline on 0808 800 6000."
