A one-stop clinic for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant breast disease by a multidisciplinary team of leading consultants, based in Harley Street, London.
Where can I find treatment for breast problems in London?
The London Breast Clinic
is centrally located in relaxed and friendly premises at 108 Harley Street. It provides rapid access to a multidisciplinary team of experts in its breast clinics that are held daily, Monday to Friday. Appointments can usually be arranged within 24 hours and sometimes the same day. The latest imaging and clinical tests are available onsite to provide an accurate assessment in the quickest time possible.
Rapid assessment of breast lumps and breast changes
The most common reason for referral to The London Breast Clinic is the discovery of a lump, discharge from the nipple or other abnormality affecting the breast. Although 90% of breast lumps are benign, rapid assessment can bring peace of mind or, if necessary, fast access to treatment. The London Breast Clinic is designed to offer this rapid assessment, using full field digital mammography, ultrasound, fine needle aspiration cytology and core biopsy. Some benign lumps can be removed in the onsite Day Surgery Centre using vacuum biopsy.
Annual breast screening
London Breast Clinic offers a complete breast screening
service for self referring patients using
full field digital mammography. This is
especially popular with patients below the age of 50 who are concerned
about their breast health and patients who wish to be screened annually,
rather than every three years on the NHS Breast Screening Programme. Any abnormalities found on screening can be quickly assessed at the Clinic.
Breast Tomosynthesis - an additional diagnostic tool
A new technology, tomosynthesis is very similar to a traditional mammogram. It is used to identify very small cancers or rule out “false positives” and reduce the number of women who are recalled.
Breast tomosynthesis has been shown in clinical studies to be superior to digital mammography.
Access to expert treatment for breast cancer
the assessment of a lump or abnormality leads to a diagnosis of
malignant breast disease, the team at the London Breast Clinic are able
to tailor an optimal treatment plan to the individual patient. Their
expert breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiologists and oncologists carry out all the necessary procedures and treatments at partner
hospitals in London. A consultant geneticist is available to offer
advice to women with a family history of breast cancer.
