Breast Surgeon??

Hey out there,

Just wondering if there is a difference  your gp sends you straight to the Breast Surgeon her words not breast clinic. 2wk referral was called the next day and have my appointment on tuesday. So is there a difference anyone please


Hi SueBoo22,

I don’t think so. Breast clinics are staffed by multidisciplinary team - including breast surgeons. They don’t work in isolation. You would usually be examined by  a doctor, probably a registrar,  then have tests at same time such as mammograms and/or ultrasounds first and biopsies as well if they think there may be a problem. 

Your GP may just have meant breast clinic.

I hope all goes well for you on Tuesday.  It is a stressful time waiting.

Take care.
