History of Breastfriend

Breast Friend Surgery & Wellness was born after long discussions with her close girl friends about what women need. There are many websites and lots of information available on the internet. But it may be difficult for you to know if what you read applies to you. Dr Tan Yia Swam believes in patient-centric care. We place patients at the heart of what we do.

This means we put you and your needs at the forefront. You are way more than a single breast diagnosis. We want to look after YOU. This is how we help you achieve true health and wellness.


Breast Friend Surgery & Wellness provides a model of breast care that goes beyond the physical. There is much public awareness that breast cancer is the no. 1 cancer affecting women in Singapore.

However, there are many common breast conditions (pain, itch, lumpiness, rash) that may not be related to cancer, yet cause a lot of anxiety and worry. Also, many of the symptoms of breast cancer overlap with benign conditions.
