Why breast screening is important at London Breast Institute?

Routine breast screening can be an important part of anyone’s life. While many are regular self-checks, there can be other factors or reasons why you would need to have a more thorough breast screening. Here at the London Breast Institute our experienced mammographers and radiologists are on hand to help you through this process.

You can also refer yourself for a screening, you don’t have to wait for your GP if you meet the following criteria:

Types of screening and diagnostic investigations

There are several types of screening or diagnostic investigations you can do and depending on your family history we also offer genetic testing.

Mammography

This involves taking an x-ray of the breasts. It can help to detect cancers early and can detect changes in your breast tissue. At the London Breast Institute we also have a 3D mammography called Tomosynthesis. You can usually get your results from our mammography services within 24hrs of your screening.

Breast ultrasound

Frequently used if a lump has been found in the breast, ultrasounds use high frequency sound waves to detect what’s inside the breast. If any abnormalities are found, ultrasounds can also detect if these lumps are solid, or filled.

Breast MRI

If not enough information can be gathered from a mammogram or ultrasound due to highly dense breast tissue, a breast MRI can be requested. Known as Magnetic Resonance Imaging, this uses magnets to build up a picture of the breast.

Breast PET-CT

Useful for detecting larger cancer cells, PET-CTs work by taking pictures of cells within the body, as they work. This is especially useful within breast tissue as cancer cells are abnormally more active than normal cells.

Vacuum Assisted Biopsy

A minimally invasive diagnostic procedure. Vacuum Assisted Biopsy involves taking a sample of the breast tissue. These samples are then sent off for analysis. Typically results are returned within 48 hours. Our System also allows us to remove benign tumours, without requiring an overnight stay.

Fine Needle Aspiration and Core Biopsies

Using a small thin needle on a syringe, a Fine Needle Aspiration and Core Biopsies obtain cells from a breast lesion or draws fluid from a cyst during an ultrasound. These samples are then sent off for analysis, with results obtained within 48 hours.

DEXA scan

Some medication used to treat breast cancer can cause side effects such as bone loss. Our DEXA Scanner allows us to monitor your bone density over a period of time. Ensuring you are given the correct supplements and nutritional advice to combat the side effects of the cancer treatments. 

BRCA1 and BRCA2 testing

If you have a family history of breast cancer, The London Breast Institute can offer gene testing for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 type abnormalities. If you wish to undergo this type of testing, please speak to a member of our team. Call 020 7908 2004.
