Pall Mall Medical - for all your private healthcare needs, whether you are self-paying or have private medical insurance.
With breast cancer being the most widespread cancer in the UK*, it is more vital than ever for women to attend regular screenings - with mammograms being the most useful tool for detecting breast cancer. Current guidance suggests a breast examination should be performed every three years for women between the ages of 47 and 73.
But what happens if you are already experiencing symptoms, such as lumps on self-examination, pain or nipple discharge? We offer a special symptom diagnosis clinic that allows you to find out the cause as quickly as possible.
For women showing symptoms, this Gold Standard Triple Assessment with experienced consultants, as well as the latest in imaging technology and testing methods, will give you the peace of mind you need, or the early start in any treatment.
When you come to Pall Mall Medical for an assessment of your lump or pain, you’ll see a consultant radiologist and a consultant breast surgeon.
To begin with, you’ll meet with a consultant surgeon. He will assess your current symptoms and family history, which is important if your sisters, mother, aunts or grandmothers have previously been diagnosed with breast cancer.
If any abnormalities are identified, a biopsy; either via fine needle aspiration or core biopsy method, will be performed. The results will be available within 5 working days, and will be discussed in a follow-up consultation with the breast surgeon.
Where possible, we arrange for the consultation, diagnostic scans, and biopsy procedure to take place on the same day at our private hospital in Newton-le-Willows (near St Helens). There is no need to travel elsewhere, we are able to carry out all the required tests and scans in the diagnostic imaging centre at this location.
