On the spot tests

A consultant breast surgeon will lead your care. During your visit the surgeon will examine you and where needed, refer you for a mammogram and/or breast ultrasound.

If necessary a fine needle test and/or core biopsy may be required, to exclude any abnormalities within a lump that has been discovered.

Please be aware of the likelihood of some waiting time during your clinic visit to allow all tests to be performed.

Quality Care

A dedicated team of specialists are on standby in the clinic to care for your specific needs when you are worried about breast problems.

The professional team includes:

  • A consultant breast surgeon
  • Mammography specialists radiographer (to take mammogram pictures)
  • A consultant breast radiologist (to read the result of the mammogram, ultrasound scans and undertake biopsies)
  • Breast care nurse (to offer information, support and counselling)


Rapid Results

In most cases the result will be available on the day, but occasionally further tests are needed to give a conclusive result. Support is provided by a breast care nurse who offers emotional support and if necessary can guide you through the treatment options as well as providing ongoing care for patients who may require surgery.

Breast changes to look out for include:

  • A change in the size, shape or feel of your breast
  • Dimpling, puckering of redness of skin
  • Redness, a rash or crusting on your nipple or surrounding areas
  • A change in your nipple, such as in its shape or if it turns inwards towards your breast (becomes inverted)
  • A discharge from your nipple (unless you're breast feeding)
  • Bleeding from your nipple area
  • Pain in part of your breast or armpit
  • Swelling, thickening or a lump in your breast or arm pit
