At BMI Goring Hall Hospital, we have private consultant breast surgeons who offer a full range of private breast services from diagnosis to treatment and follow-up care, for patients in Worthing, Pulborough and Horsham.
We hold a rapid access clinic that runs every Thursday evening from 18:00 until 21:00 and is supported by a private breast care nurse as your key worker (point of contact).
In our rapid access clinic your initial examination, mammogram and ultrasound results will be given to you on the same evening. Any other diagnostics will be discussed with you.
The areas that will be offered as personalised screening are as follows:
This is a screening tool which is used to help detect early signs of breast cancer. Women with or without symptoms are encouraged to get regular screening to pick up early signs.
A diagnostic mammogram may be carried out if there are symptoms or changes to the breast, such as breast lumps, thickened tissue or if the breast looks or feels different.
An ultrasound of the breast uses waves to analyse the internal structure of the breast. This is used to analyse abnormal symptoms such as breast lumps. A breast ultrasound is often used for younger people with denser breast tissue.
It can be used instead of or in addition to a mammogram depending on what the Consultant recommends.
Using radio wave and MRI of the breast gives a detailed image of the breast’s internal structures. A breast MRI is also used in addition to a breast ultrasound or mammogram depending on the Consultants recommendations.
A breast MRI is usually performed on patients with a high risk of breast cancer as a result of abnormal tissue identified in a mammogram or breast ultrasound.
This involves getting a sample of tissue for examination. A biopsy is normally done after a suspicious lump or lesion is identified. Methods of biopsy are fine-needle aspiration, core-needle biopsy and surgical biopsy.
The method used is dependent on the kind of tissue sample required and where the lump or lesion is located.
There are various types of cysts and some may be more difficult to remove than others. In some instances, a cyst may return more than once and may need to be surgically opened for the fluid to drain out releasing any infection with it.
There is no age restriction to screening and self-referral for uninsured patients is accepted, however if you are insured a GP referral is required.
