WHAT HAPPEN DURING THE CONSULTATION IN a BREAST CLINIC.

In a breast clinic, the breast surgeon will ask about the condition you present with, whatever that may be (e.g. breast lump, breast pain, nipple discharge). They will also ask you about your general health, your past medical history, and any family history of breast cancer you may have. A full breast examination will then be performed, whilst sitting up and lying down. Your armpits will also be examined

After this, if indicated, you will be referred to the radiology department for further diagnostic tests.

If the clinic is a one-stop clinic, this will be done on the same day.The scan recommended may either be an ultrasound scan, a mammogram, or both. This depends on your age and the condition you present with. If we find anything that we would like to investigate further, then a biopsy/needle test will be performed.

In a rapid access clinic, you will go back and see the surgeon straight after you have had the scans and have a discussion about the results. If all is well, then that is the end of the consultation. If you had a biopsy, then a follow-up appointment will be made to give you the results.

WHAT HAPPENS if THE LUMP IS NOT CANCEROUS?

Benign (non-cancerous) breast lumps are treated depending on their nature. Areas of fibrocystic change that can present as ‘lumpiness’ can be left alone. If we find cysts, again we can either leave it alone or if they are large we can aspirate the fluid it normally contains under ultrasound guidance. Benign lumps such as fibroadenomas are usually surgically excised if they are large. You will have a discussion with the breast surgeon as to how best to treat benign lumps.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE LUMP is CANCEROUS?

Breast cancer treatment involves several modalities, which include surgery, as well as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and endocrine therapy (i.e tablets).

The treatment reommended to you will be tailored according to the cancer you have. Some people may need all the treatment above; others may only need one or two of the treatments.

SURGERY

 Lumpectomy & Mastectomy

If you need surgery, there are two types that we perform, a lumpectomy (breast conservation surgery) or a mastectomy. The type of surgery recommended will on the size of the lump in relation to the size of the breast. Those who have mastectomies should be offered breast reconstruction, either at the same time as the cancer operation or in the delayed setting. Two types of reconstruction are usually discussed; implant reconstruction or using your own body tissue such as your back muscle (latissimus dorsi) or using your tummy fat (DIEP reconstruction)

 

other Treatment and solutions including:

THERAPY TREATMENTS

Other forms of treatment including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and endocrine therapy will be discussed and offered according to the characteristics of the cancer. Sometimes, chemotherapy is given first before surgery (neo-adjuvant chemotherapy).Depending on the cancer type, you may also need an operation to the armpit (axilla) where a few (or all glands) will be removed to check the presence of any cancer cells. This is normally done at the same time as the breast operation.

You will have a breast care nurse who will help you through your treatment. She will be your point to contact whenever you need help or advice. All you need is assurance.
