We care for patients with breast disease.
Based at Wycombe Hospital, we see patients from across Buckinghamshire for breast screening and symptomatic care.
We diagnose and treat benign (non cancerous) and malignant breast conditions. Our team works closely with staff who specialise in breast radiology, diagnostics, oncology, and plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Our team includes breast care nurses, clinical psychologists, geneticists, and lymphoedema specialists.
Referrals to the Breast Care Service
We see urgent patient referrals from your GP within 2 weeks, often sooner.
What to expect during your appointment
We see patients with breast lumps, pain, discharge and other symptoms. A consultant will see you and you may need a mammogram and/or an ultrasound scan.
We’ll tell you the results on the same day.
If we detect any abnormalities, we may need to do further mammograms or a needle test/biopsy. We do these tests on the same day.
A specialist breast care nurse will provide support during your appointment and examination.
