Mr El Gammal sees patients at his one-stop breast clinic. If you have any symptoms relating to your breasts, and want to be seen quickly, the breast clinic could be right for you
In the majority of cases, symptoms in your breasts are nothing to worry about. However, it is important to get checked as quickly as possible. We understand that this is a worrying time, and Mr El Gammal will ensure your experience is as reassuring and caring as can be.
Symptoms may include:
- Painless lumps in any part of your breast, nipple or armpit
- Change in size or shape of your breast
- Dimpling on your breast
- Rash around your nipple
- Bloody discharge from your nipple
- Inverted nipple
At your appointment, Mr El Gammal will talk through your symptoms and examine your breasts. Mr El Gammal is supported by specialist breast care nurses and expert radiographers and radiologists who will guide you through any scans and tests you may need as part of your visit.
Usually, you will need a mammogram to diagnose the cause of your symptoms. You might also need a breast ultrasound, or a biopsy. If you do need a biopsy, results are usually available within 48 hours.
Can I bring a family member with me?
Of course, you may bring someone with you and they are welcome to come into the appointment with you if you would like. The breast care nurses will also be present during your appointment and will act as chaperone.
What happens if I am diagnosed with cancer?
The majority of breast related symptoms are not malignant, but should you be diagnosed with breast cancer, our team will be with you every step of the way and ensure you get the right treatment that you need. It is important to remember that breast cancer is no longer as difficult to treat as it used to be, and many people make a full recovery after successful treatment.
