There are many causes for lumps in the breast and discovering a lump can be extremely worrying. We fully appreciate the anxiety and disruption associated with having to wait for a breast assessment in order to ascertain the exact nature of your lump. We offer a choice of two ‘Rapid-Access’ clinic dates per week, enabling full breast assessment in a timely fashion. Each case is Triple Assessed to rule out significant disease. Most results are available the same day and clinical outcomes are discussed between our expert members of the multidisciplinary team to ensure an accurate diagnosis is reached. If core needle biopsy is undertaken then a further appointment is booked the following week to discuss these results with you, again after reviewing them in a multidisciplinary setting. A dedicated breast nurse is always available for all of our clinics and is fully trained in supporting you through the assessment pathway.
