Breast & General Surgery

Our clinics are consultant led, offering patients an expert opinion and rapid diagnosis.

During the consultation your consultant will examine your breasts and will discuss the symptoms with you. The consultant will then arrange imaging investigations if necessary.

The most common imaging investigation for breast cancer is Mammogram. You may also need an ultrasound as well as or instead of a mammogram (if a mammogram is not suitable) or sometimes an MRI scan. Both imaging investigations are performed by a consultant breast radiologist. The imaging results will determine whether further investigations are necessary. This may include a fine needle aspiration, where a small needle is inserted into the cavity and fluid is taken. Or a biopsy, where a small needle is inserted into the cavity and a small piece is removed for microscopic investigation by a pathologist. 

You will have your biopsy results within 48 hours to ensure a fast diagnosis.

During the clinic, a breast care specialist nurse will be available for support and advice if you would like a chat or have any questions.
