Understand more about your care
What to expect from your treatment
If you've been told that you have breast cancer, you may require surgery to remove the affected tissue and check if the cancer has spread beyond the breast.
While the prospect of surgery can be daunting, the good news is that breast cancer is one of the most well-understood cancers. Thanks to recent innovations, it can now be treated with fewer surgical procedures and less discomfort than ever before.
Endomag technologies play a small but important role in the treatment of breast cancer, helping surgeons to perform removal and staging procedures with greater precision and care.
What do our products do?
When a surgeon performs breast surgery, they’re looking for the most likely sites of cancer. To help them find the right spot, they insert a small localisation device, and inject a tracer liquid into the breast before surgery.
In the past, surgeons have used devices called guidewires and radioactive tracers to perform these removal and staging procedures. However, with Endomag technologies the procedures are performed using magnetic alternatives instead. The benefits of our technologies include reduced discomfort, fewer hospital visits, improved cosmetic outcomes, and greater accuracy for the surgeon in removing the cancer.

How to perform a thorough breast self-exam
When it comes to breast cancer, early detection saves lives. One way to be more aware of changes to your breasts is through self-examination, but how can you do this effectively?
What is the Magtrace® lymphatic tracer?
The Magtrace® lymphatic tracer is a specialist magnetically detectable liquid which helps surgeons and radiologists in the surgical treatment of breast cancer.
What is the Magseed® marker?
The Magseed® marker is a magnetic, unbreakable seed used by hospitals in the surgical treatment of breast cancer. Read about how it works and why hospitals use it.
Targeted axillary dissection with the Magseed® marker
Targeted axillary dissection (TAD) is a treatment that involves 'marking' cancerous lymph nodes in your underarm early, before undergoing a therapy such as chemotherapy, and then surgery.
Sentinel lymph node biopsy with Magtrace® lymphatic tracer
A sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a treatment that involves identifying and then surgically removing a small selection of lymph nodes from your underarm for investigation.
Lumpectomy surgery with the Magseed® marker
This guide has been written to help you understand more about what's involved in a lumpectomy performed using the Magseed® marker, if you've been diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer.
