Description

Mercy Breast Clinic specialises in assessment and treatment of breast lumps, breast pain, breast cancer and other breast health concerns as well as breast surgical procedures. We partner with our patients throughout their journey from initial consultation, through diagnostic imaging and diagnosis; all on the same day and all in one place.

The approach to diagnosing breast problems or ruling out disease is often a complex one which requires specialist input and integration of symptoms and information with imaging results.  At Mercy Breast Clinic we aim to provide you with the best possible breast care through a "one stop" clinic experience where you can undergo tests including:

  • Mammogram, 2D and 3D Tomosynthesis
  • Breast Ultrasound
  • Breast Biopsy
  • Cyst Aspiration

The choice of tests depends on your age, breast density type and your presenting symptom. You will gain a result on the same day, and if required we can arrange for you to be assessed by a breast specialist surgeon. Results from your tests can then be correlated together and interpreted with your actual symptom to best arrive at a diagnosis and management plan.

The team includes specialist nurses, breast radiologists, mammographers, sonographers and breast surgeons.  We also have access to our wider Mercy Radiology services for any additional tests such as MRI or PET CT scans and have close links with pathologists, plastic & reconstructive surgeons and oncologists. The overall aim is to provide you with high standard, efficient and personalised care for your breast health, from experts in the field.
