If you have any concerning breast symptoms, book your initial appointment at Ross Hall Hospital's One-Stop Breast Clinic today.
The vast majority of patients who come through the breast clinic do not end up with a breast cancer diagnosis; other benign or hormonal-related issues are usually the cause of any symptoms. Regardless it is important to get any symptoms checked out by a specialist as soon as you notice them.
The clinic is open four days per week, with a selection of daytime and evening appointments available at times to suit you.
This information will allow them to develop an accurate risk profile for your circumstances and request the most appropriate diagnostic tests to identify your condition.
At Ross Hall Hospital, our patients have access to a hugely comprehensive service for private breast surgery diagnostics.
Here are some scans and tests that your consultant may recommend:
Breast surgery consultants work in unison with breast care nurses, mammographers, and consultant radiologists to deliver a seamless and stress-free experience.
Once the test results are ready, your consultant will talk you through them and confirm your diagnosis. If your condition is benign, you might be discharged immediately or referred back to your GP for further evaluation.
If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, your consultant will clearly explain what this means, answer any questions you have and provide full detail of the possible next steps.
You will spend some time with the breast care nurse specialist, who will talk you through all available support options and provide you with information about what happens next.
All breast cancer patient cases are individually discussed and reviewed weekly by an experienced multidisciplinary team, including the Surgeon, Radiologist, Oncologist, and Pathologist.
This meeting will result in a tailored treatment plan for each patient, which will be discussed with you at a follow-up appointment to plan the following stages of your care.
Patients can also opt to have breast surgery at Ross Hall Hospital if they have received a breast cancer diagnosis elsewhere.
During your inpatient stay, you will see the breast care nurse who will help you with an external prosthesis and fitted bra if required after a mastectomy. You'll also be seen regularly by your consultant, who will talk you through the surgery and answer any questions you might have.
You might also see a physical therapist as part of your stay who will help you with simple exercises for your arm and shoulder to improve mobility after surgery.
Following your discharge from the hospital, you'll have several follow-ups with your consultant to check your healing and discuss your ongoing treatment. You will begin the following stages of your recovery if required by your condition.
Depending on the type of cancer and your family history, your consultant may refer you for genetic testing, which can be carried out at Ross Hall Hospital. Testing will help identify any genes that may be linked to your cancer, confirming whether other family members with the same inherited gene may be at risk. If you have a gene that puts you at greater risk of breast cancer, your consultant will discuss ongoing monitoring options with you.
