Breast Cancer Awareness Month: One-Stop Breast Clinics at New Victoria Hospital

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: One-Stop Breast Clinics at New Victoria Hospital

Posted by Eyes of Lady Wimbledon | 22 October 2020 | Community Spirit, Health & Fitness, What's On

In light of the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lady Wimbledon gets in touch with New Victoria Hospital to learn more about why it’s so important to get checked out – and just how to do it…

At New Victoria Hospital, the One-Stop Breast Clinic offers fast track access to consultation and diagnosis to all women that are concerned about their breast health.

9 out of 10 breast lumps that women experience in their lives are benign, but if that little bump you can feel in your breast gives you sleepless nights, it might be time for a screening. New Victoria Hospital can provide a clinical breast examination, a mammogram or ultrasound and fine needle aspiration on the same day of your consultation with a breast specialist. Biopsy results are usually given within 48-72 hours.

Women of any age who are concerned about their breasts can contact the One-Stop rapid diagnosis Breast Clinic.

The benefits of One-Stop Breast Clinic

 

Many women find One-Stop Breast Clinics very beneficial. Having an in-depth check up with results delivered on the same day of your appointment can give you peace of mind. If treatment is required, a prompt diagnosis can make a huge difference in the therapy outcome.

Breast specialists will also refer you to specialist consultant clinical geneticists and provide you with detailed information sheets on “Genes and Families” (Breast Cancer Now publications, ref 4) that gives you a clearer idea on gene risk factors, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer.

If you are concerned about symptoms such as:

· breast pain
· nipple discharge
· nipple rashes
· permanent nipple indentation
· breast skin dimpling

it is always advisable to see a specialist.

So where can I find it?
