It can be worrying to find changes in your breast. If you do notice anything that is unusual for you, BMI Fawkham Manor’s ‘one stop’ breast clinic can help you get fast access to advice, diagnosis and treatment.
Our breast clinic is led by a Consultant Breast Surgeon who will decide whether you require further investigations. This might include diagnostic scans such as mammography and/ or ultrasound which can be carried out the same day. A fine needle aspiration or a biopsy may also be required and you can expect the results from this the following week.
It is not always necessary to get a referral from your GP to access Fawkham Manor’s breast service and many private patients refer themselves.
