Brief introduction

MDT ensures a coordinated approach to diagnosis, treatment and care for patients diagnosed with breast cancer and benign breast conditions.

 

What to do if you expect you may have cancer

Report concerns to your GP. At that point if your GP feels that you should be seen at the hospital a referral will be completed.

You will be referred to a ‘Breast Clinic’ where a ‘triple assessment’ will be carried out:-

  • Clinical- history and examination
  • Radiological- mammogram or ultrasound or both based on clinical parameters.
  • Pathological- Core biopsy or the occasional fine needle aspiration.
