Breast Screening and Assessment of Screening Abnormalities

Adhering to the high standards of the National Breast Screening Programme, our screening is tailored to each patients specific needs. A complete team with the necessary surgical, radiological and pathological expertise and equipment assesses all conditions. Breast screening incorporates clinical assessment and examination by an experienced Consultant Breast Surgeon, plus mammography, ultrasound imaging and MRI scanning , if indicated. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) or Core Biopsy, can also be undertaken by the consultant breast surgeon for assessment by breast specialist cytologists and histopathologists, who are members of the multi-disciplinary team. Localisation and surgical excision is also available if necessary.

Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC)

In this investigation a consultant breast surgeon a inserts a fine needle into the breast, to remove a small sample cells from the breast lump, for microscopic examination (cytology), to look for any signs of abnormality in the cells. It may be undertaken directly if there is a palpable lump or using ultrasound to guide the needle to the area of abnormality. To get enough material for examination under the microscope, the needle may need to be jiggled within the breast which may be slightly uncomfortable. The results are usually available with 24 hours and the consultant breast surgeon will then discuss the findings with you. The consultant may also drain fluid from cysts in this way.
