Faster analysis of facial tumours

Faster analysis of facial tumours

£17,000 in autumn 2013 to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for improved equipment for cancer detection.

Patients with facial tumours may need part or all of their upper or lower jaw removed.  Following the operation, the tumour is examined under a microscope to determine what further treatment may be needed.  In the current procedure the bone must be treated chemically for 4-6 weeks before it can be dissected and analysed, a much longer waiting time than the 20 days recommended by the Royal College of Pathologists.

This grant provided funds for the purchase of a band saw, which allows samples to be cut to size so that they can be processed more quickly.  This improved patient recovery and also reduced the stress of waiting for results.

Find out how Big C can support you and your family if you’ve been affected by cancer.

We can help to improve your quality of life, physical health, and mental wellbeing.

Some people take to the skies, run, jump, walk, swim and cycle whilst others make tea, bake cakes or shave heads.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
