Referral Expectations

Many of the patients visiting St Marks Breast Centre will be referred by their General Practitioner or another medical specialist. Self referrals however, are always accepted although we would always encourage keeping the General Practitioner updated with the outcome so that they can continue to provide appropriate primary healthcare.

Some private health insurance companies require you to be referred by your General Practitioner in order to validate your health insurance. Please check this with your individual private health insurance provider.

Appointments can be made by phone, fax or email. 

Please bring any previous mammograms, ultrasounds or scans that you have had done with you. If you have a breast problem the first appointment might include a clinical examination, mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy. You should expect to be at St Marks for up to an hour on your first visit. The inital consultation with one of our specialist Breast Surgeons regarding breast augmentation or reduction is free.

Procedures / Treatments / Common Conditions

  • Mammography

    The mammogram is still the gold standard investigation for detecting early breast cancer and the only screening tool that has been shown to decrease the death rate from breast cancer.… More

  • Ultrasound

    Even with the best mammograms not all cancers will be detected.… More

  • Fine Needle Aspiration

    This procedure involves inserting a needle through your skin into the breast lump and removing a sample of cells for examination under the microscope. Local anaesthetic will often be used to numb the skin through which the needle passes. More

  • Biopsy

    A core biopsy is where a biopsy needle is put into the breast and a core of tissue is removed.… More

  • Stereotactic Mammotome Biopsy

    The mammotome breast biopsy system enables us to accurately diagnose areas seen on mammogram that are not able to be assessed by clinical examination or breast ultrasound.… More

  • Breast Cancer Surgery

    Partial versus full mastectomy
    It is now recognised that, in properly selected women, just removing the part of the breast where the cancer is (partial mastectomy), combined with post-op radiotherapy, has the same survival outcome as removing the whole breast (full mastectomy).… More

  • Sentinel Node Biopsy

    Previously, women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer would have all the lymph nodes removed from the axilla (armpit) on the affected side.… More

  • Breast Reconstruction

    Breast reconstruction can be achieved in several different ways and the options and methods that would be suitable will be discussed with each individual woman.… More

  • Breast Augmentation

    Breast augmentation is now a widely accepted procedure and in women with breast cancer the same technique can be used to increase the size of a small non affected breast to match a reconstructed breast.… More

  • Breast Reduction

    The majority of women having breast reduction surgery do not have cancer but do have medical symptoms of upper back, shoulder and neck discomfort.… More

  • Benign Breast Conditions

    Benign breast disease is very common and in many cases does not require any treatment other than diagnosis and an explanation of the condition. … More
