BREAST CLINIC TESTS AT SEVENOAKS MEDICAL CENTRE
In order to assess and treat conditions related to the breast we can perform a number of diagnostic tests These include:
Ultrasound scanning – This is an imaging technique that uses sound waves to look for breast lumps and other breast abnormalities. It can also be used to analyse abnormal mammogram results.
Mammograms -This technique involves the mammographer producing images of the breast by compressing it between two plates. The procedure should not cause any pain however you may experience some discomfort. The consultant radiologist will then examine the images and may recommend additional views, or tomosynthesis breast imaging to achieve a better assessment.
Fine needle aspiration – This procedure entails using a fine needle and syringe to collect breast cells, this type of biopsy is carried out to analyse the tissue of the breast under a microscope. Some patients may experience some discomfort for a few minutes.
Core biopsy – This technique requires the use of a local anaesthetic. It involves removing a small fragment of tissue from the breast. Multiple samples may be required to make sure a suitable amount of tissue is taken. The duration of the procedure is between 15 to 20 minutes.
Following a discussion with your consultant, should you require surgery we would be able to arrange this for you at KIMS Hospital.
