One Stop Breast Clinic
Fitzwilliam Hospital Rapid Diagnosis Breast Clinic has been developed to help ease the anxiety of breast symptoms, such as the discovery of a breast lump.
We have a dedicated team of specialists in the clinic to care for your specific needs when you are worried about breast problems. You will be seen by a Consultant Breast Surgeon, Mr Steven Goh or Tholfifi Abdullah, who will examine you and if necessary a mammogram or breast ultrasound and further tests will be conducted.
It is important to emphasise that more than often the result will be normal and you will leave the clinic with complete peace of mind. If an abnormality is detected you will receive immediate support and early access to treatment.
3 Dimensional Mammography
We utilise state of the art technology with 3 Dimensional Mammography, being one of the only private hospitals in the whole of Peterborough offer this.
The benefits of this are:
- More accurate detection: By minimizing the impact of overlapping breast tissue, 3D mammography can make a breast cancer easier to spot. Reviewing multiple images has helped doctors find more cancers than with 2D images alone.
- Earlier diagnosis: Overlapping tissue can hide small cancers in a 2D scan. However, with 3D mammography, the image “slices” can be analysed one by one. This means 3D mammography may help detect cancers earlier than conventional mammography.
- Better detection in dense breast tissue: Dense breast tissue, often found in younger women under 40, can cause shadows due to overlapping tissue, which hides breast cancers from traditional 2D mammography. 3D mammography takes images of the breast from multiple angles, thereby offering a cutting-edge look through and around breast tissue
We offer competitive packages for those ladies who wish to self-pay to attend the rapid diagnostic clinic, if they do not have private medical insurance accordingly.
