At BMI The Alexandra Hospital we have a dedicated Women’s Health Unit, with a separate waiting area offering additional privacy to patients who need a breast assessment, and live in Manchester, Stockport or Cheshire.
Our specialist breast nurses, highly experienced private consultants and radiologists will guide you through your consultation and any examinations that may be required.
The Alexandra also offers a private Breast Screening Service for patients wishing to have a mammographic screening, and a Family History Service to determine whether you are at a higher risk of developing breast cancer. If necessary, our experienced Breast nurses will advise you on the treatment options available.
Should you need to have further treatment or surgery, our private Oncology Centre operates a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) who will review your case and provide you with a personalised treatment plan to suit your diagnoses and needs.
We also have a tomosynthesis mammogram machine which is a form of 3D mammography with the capability of picking up smaller breast cancers. This is particularly useful for women with dense breasts.
This particular scan may be recommended to you, by your surgeon, if you have breast implants or dense breast tissue.
If you are concerned about a particular cyst, if it is large or causing you discomfort, a specialist can drain the cyst using a fine needle or syringe.
A biopsy can determine the cause of a growth or sore and is used to diagnose cancer. The results of the biopsy can take 2-4 working days. We will discuss the examination with you and whether there is anything for concern.
Should you need to have further treatment or surgery, The Alexandra Hospital has a respected, private Oncology Centre who will provide you with a personalised treatment plan.
Alternatively, you can be referred via your GP, and we will follow up your GP referral for you if necessary.
The Support Group takes place on the second Thursday of every month, from 6pm-8pm, at the hospital. There is no need to book your place in advance; you are welcome to turn up on the evening.
If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.
