Discovering a lump in your breast can be very distressing and any time spent waiting for a diagnosis can seem like an eternity. At our One Stop Breast Clinic at Spire Leicester Hospital, our compassionate, efficient team of specialists, work together to help diagnose the cause with minimal waiting for results.
We aim to carry out all the investigations needed at your first appointment
Whatever your concern, from initial consultation to diagnosis and treatment we aim to offer continuous and seamless care to achieve the best and most effective medical care for you.
What can I expect?
Immediately after undertaking an initial examination with one of our consultant breast surgeons, any further imaging or diagnostic tests necessary to assess the lump are carried out.
The imaging procedure, usually ultrasound or mammography, is undertaken by a consultant radiologist in our clean and comfortable radiology department. Scan results are reported on there and then and returned straight to your consultant to review.
If any abnormality is found on the scan, a biopsy, (a fine needle aspiration or core biopsy) will be carried out by the consultant in clinic.
Throughout your visit a specialist breast care nurse will be available to provide you with support and information.
On completion of any investigations your consultant will spend time with you, talking you through their findings, answering any questions and discussing any concerns you may have.
