Breast surgery is usually carried out by specialist breast surgeons who can specialise in both medical and cosmetic procedures. A breast surgeon can perform tests to help diagnose lumps found on the breast, and perform surgery to treat them.
Common conditions seen by Breast Surgeons
- Breast lumps
- Breast cancer
- Benign breast problems
Most lumps aren’t breast cancer, but it is important to see your GP or a breast specialist if you notice any lumps on your breast.
The Montefiore Hospital has the facilities and expertise to offer breast investigations and treatments. Our specialists can help diagnose any lumps which are of concern through investigations such as mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy. If a breast lump needs to be treated, your surgeon will suggest the best course of treatment going forward.
In cases of breast cancer, you may need further chemotherapy after surgery. Our breast surgeons are supported by our Consultant Oncologists and chemotherapy nurses who will make sure that you get the right treatment. Our Breast Care Nurse also runs a monthly support group for women going through breast cancer treatment at the hospital.
