Breast Disorders

General surgery covers breast diseases including breast cancer. These conditions are often initially dealt with in a specialised breast clinic which is able to perform a number of investigations [e.g. mammography (breast x-ray) and needle biopsy (small samples of tissue taken from any lumps found in the breast)] during the initial outpatient clinic visit.
