Breast Screening at Nuffield Health Guildford Hospital

Discuss your symptoms with one of our expert consultants, you will receive an examination followed by a tailored diagnostic plan. If necessary you may have a mammogram with our Mammographer, and/or followed by an ultrasound with our Breast Radiologist. You will have a Healthcare Assistant accompany you throughout the clinic and you will receive your results within the same day.

If required, our breast radiologist may carry out a biopsy. This will provide you with full clarity, however results may take up to 7 working days.

If you notice any of the following, it may be in your best interest to book a breast screening with us:

  • A lump or swelling in the chest, armpit or upper chest
  • Visible change in size in the breast or one if one breast is visibly larger than the other
  • A change in the skin on the breast texture such as puckering or dimpling
  • A change in nipple such as inverted and becoming pulled in or a change in nipple shape
  • Rash or crusting around the nipple
  • Discharge (unusual liquid) in one or both nipples
  • Change in colour of the breast, it may be inflamed or look red
  • Constant pain in the breast or armpit that is there all or most of the time

Scans we offer:

  • Ultrasound – painless high-frequency soundwave examination
  • Mammogram – X-Ray detailed structure of the breast tissue.

Biopsy Techniques

To remove and examine samples of tissue, we may use one or more of the following procedures:

  • Fine Needle Biopsy – Usually taken by the Consultant Breast Radiologist with a needle to remove a small cyst
  • Core Biopsy – Usually taken by the Consultant Breast Radiologist in the diagnostic imaging department under ultrasound or X-Ray guidance. The procedure will include making a small incision under local anaesthetic and remove a sample of tissue by using a particular biopsy needle and will be analysed in the pathology laboratory.

Ranges from £895 - £1500, depending on the package with or without a biopsy.
