Country of origin: UK

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on endoscopic mastectomy and endoscopic wide local excision for breast cancer.

Treatment for early breast cancer usually involves surgery to remove all or part of the breast. In this keyhole procedure, part or all of the breast tissue is removed using special instruments inserted through small skin incisions. The skin envelope of the breast and nipple are left intact, ready for an implant that can be inserted during the same operation.

'Endoscopic mastectomy and endoscopic wide local excision for breast cancer: guidance' is available online.
