Discovering a lump in your breast can be very distressing. Spire South Bank Hospital’s outstanding one-stop breast clinic is an efficient service, designed to help diagnose the cause with minimal waiting for results.
We aim to be able to carry out all the investigations needed at your first appointment
All women can be affected by breast disease, but it is important to remember that not all breast disease is cancer. Early diagnosis of breast problems helps to ensure that if cancer is detected, the chances of successful treatment are improved.
At Spire South Bank Hospital in Worcester, patients with breast lumps are offered rapid access to a team of breast care specialists. Your GP can refer you to us and it is likely that you would be seen within a week by one of our three highly skilled consultant surgeons who specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of breast disease. We also have an excellent support team of specialists across a range of services, from diagnosis through to treatment and counselling, so you can be confident you are receiving the highest levels of care.
The management of your condition will vary depending upon the diagnosis. In most cases we can reassure patients that there is no cancer present at their first visit. If tests confirm a diagnosis of breast cancer, your consultant will discuss your treatment options with you.
If you do not have private medical insurance or if your treatment is not covered, we will advise you of the cost before your consultation. To make payment easier and more convenient for you, we offer a range of flexible options.
