The Alexandra has a rapid access lumps and bumps clinic for insured and self-funding patients based in Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire.
The Sarcoma team are the regional experts in assessing and diagnosing any concerning lump. However benign it may appear all cases are advised to be sent to the team for assessment if it fulfills the criteria.
Features to watch out for in soft tissue sarcomas are a large lump (usually larger than a golf ball), increasing size, painful and deep-seated, but not always. They can however start of as very small innocent benign looking superficial lumps.
Bone tumours may present with insidious unexplained bone pain, a mass and suspicious radiographic changes. If there’s a history of cancer, bone metastases may also present this way.
The patient will be assessed by private Consultant Orthopaedic Sarcoma surgeon Mr Amit Kumar, and will be able to have initial imaging within the hour by Ultrasound by a Sarcoma radiologist. The results will be instantly available and management plan made for the patient.
On occasion further investigation at the same sitting such as an MRI scan is possible and tissue biopsy can also be performed.
The clinic is supported by a Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and in most instances cases will be discussed at a Multi-Disciplinary team (MDT) meeting if suspicious.
