Breast Screening

London | Aberdeen

One-Stop Breast Clinic now open in Aberdeen

We are delighted to offer our patients a One-Stop Breast Clinic in Aberdeen.


At one appointment, we will perform a full diagnostic assessment, including a consultation with one of our experienced breast specialists.  We carry out all the necessary tests and investigations on the same day, to include mammography or an ultrasound examination, and a fine needle biopsy if required. 


Our One-Stop Clinic pathway provides you with a unique service and reduces the time between your initial investigation and diagnosis, helping to reduce any anxiety. Though you may be referred by your GP or consultant, you do not need a referral from your GP or another clinician to attend this clinic. We accept most major insurers or offer self-pay options.


The One-Stop Breast Clinic is supported by a full multidisciplinary team including mammographers, radiologists, surgeons, cytologist and nurses. Some results are even immediately available, such as scans and cytology. When required, your case will be discussed at a MDT meeting supported by an Oncologist.


We offer state-of-the-art technology, with a choice of appointment dates and times to suit you. To book your appointment, call our friendly team now.

Why have breast screening?

Breast cancer is the most common form in women, with one in eight being affected. The incidence of breast cancer increases dramatically over the age of 40 with 80% of women diagnosed being 45+. Regular screening is important and can provide great reassurance.

 
Whether you have a specific concern or wish to attend for breast health assessment, ROC is here to help.

Our One Stop Clinic is personalised to your needs and may depend on the diagnostic tests/procedures your Consultant recommends:

  • Initial Assessment
    • Consultation and physical examination by Consultant breast surgeon
    • Either a mammogram or an ultrasound (the choice is often dependent on your age and the Consultant will advise on the day)

If the Consultant recommends additional investigations, you will continue onto one of our double/triple/quadruple assessment packages:

  • Double Assessment – consultation, ultrasound and mammogram
  • Triple/ Quadruple Assessment – consultation, ultrasound, mammogram, fine needle aspiration and/or biopsy

Other Breast Services

You can attend ROC for breast health assessment scanning, including mammography or also as part of a One-Stop clinic package.

We provide –

Routine consultations

  • This is an opportunity for individuals to address any general concerns and to be examined by one of our breast care specialists, along with investigation of any abnormality detected and personalised planning for breast cancer screening.

Mammography

  • This is widely recognised as the main identification tool for breast cancer and is vital in the diagnosis and staging of detected cancer lesions.
  • We offer state-of-the-art 3D mammography combined with the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) software to assist the radiologist in reading the images. ROC is the only private healthcare facility in the UK using Breast AI in clinical practice routinely, and all women attending the clinic will be offered a 3D mammogram.

Breast Ultrasound

  • Breast ultrasound may be sufficient to investigate your symptoms although often it is undertaken in conjunction with a mammogram.

Breast density and personalised risk assessments

  • Dense breasts make it harder for doctors to see breast cancers on 2D mammograms and increase a woman’s risk for developing breast cancer. Therefore all women attending a mammogram at ROC will have a breast density report.

Ultrasound Guided Biopsy

  • If you have a breast lump, your clinician may recommend you have a biopsy to find out if the lump is benign or malignant. Following a local anaesthetic a small tissue sample will be collected using a needle (ultrasound images are used to guide the radiologist). This sample will then be analysed to determine the nature of the identified lump.

Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

  • This specific type of biopsy may be required if a mammogram shows a breast abnormality such as:
    • Microcalcifications can be seen on your mammogram, but cannot be felt or seen on an ultrasound.
    • Distortion in the structure of the breast tissue that cannot be easily explained.
    • Abnormal tissue change in an area of the breast.
    • New calcium deposits at a previous surgery site.

During the procedure under a local anaesthetic, one of our expert radiologists will use mammography images produced at various angles to guide a mechanised needle to remove the tissue sample.
