Petition Provide medical treatment to women with congenital breast deformity (tuberous/tubular)
Congenital breast deformity is a condition women are born with.
It can lead to depression, isolation and difficulty forming relationships and leading a normal life.
However doctors are severely lacking in awareness or understanding of this important issue.
Currently women face a struggle to get medical help with the NHS, and are often refused medical help altogether, leaving them feeling in despair and with nowhere to turn.
The Department of Health needs to recognise the right of these women to receive the same help that is already offered to those women whose breasts become disfigured through accident or disease.
