Are you concerned about breast cancer?

Compassionate and expert-led approach to breast cancer care at our one stop breast clinic


Breast cancer
is a form of cancer that originates from breast tissue, often from the inner lining of milk ducts or lobules supplying ducts with milk, and it can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated.

Common symptoms of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, changes in the size or shape of the breast, and changes to the skin on the breast, such as dimpling.

If you are concerned that you may have any of these symptoms, seek advice. Especially as early detection and treatment are important for a positive outcome.

Please visit your local GP surgery for an initial discussion. If your GP recommends a follow-up consultation, request a referral to Mr Ghosh or call us directly for an appointment. We understand the unique challenges that women facing breast cancer encounter, so we’ll run some tests related to your symptoms. Hopefully, we’ll be able to put your mind at rest if we have no concerns (with same day test results), or we’ll discuss treatment options if breast cancer is detected.

We believe in peace of mind and a streamlined approach for our patients; therefore, all tests and diagnoses are performed as part of a one stop breast clinic on the same day.

What to expect on your first visit


When you’re concerned about cancer, not knowing what is going to happen from clinic appointments and waiting for the test results can be the worst parts of your treatment. This is what you can expect at DB Ghosh:

Greeting

The consultation will be followed by a series of tests, which could include a Mammography (a low-dose X-ray), Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and a Biopsy. Our efficient procedures are designed to provide you with the most accurate and timely results.

Follow-up

We are committed to your peace of mind and comfort. That's why we've streamlined our approach, to provide you with same-day test results. No need to wait for days in uncertainty. We’ll provide you with quick answers.

Tests for detecting breast cancer

Our methods for detecting breast cancer involve Mammography (a low-dose X-ray), Clinical Breast Exams, Breast Self-Examinations, Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Biopsies.

Mammography, particularly recommended for women over 50 and those at higher risk, is crucial for early detection.

Treatment and innovations for breast cancer


The treatment for breast cancer depends on its stage, your age, overall health, and personal preferences. Common treatments include surgery (Lumpectomy or Mastectomy), Radiation Therapy, Chemotherapy, Hormone Therapy, and Targeted Therapy.

Exciting innovations in breast cancer surgery include techniques such as Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT), Oncoplastic Surgery, Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy, Magnetic Seed Localisation, and Intraoperative Imaging. These are all transforming the landscape when it comes to patient outcomes. Find out more about each treatment in our FAQs.

We’re proud to say that Mr Ghosh – as a key member of the Breast Team at Royal Free and UCL Medical School – has contributed to trials exploring these exciting innovations in breast cancer treatment. He has also been one of the first surgeons to use SAVI SCOUT®️, which is radar localisation for lumpectomies (essentially making lumpectomies easier by pinpointing tumours more precisely for removal).

For comprehensive and considerate breast cancer care, we offer a wealth of experience, ensuring you receive the best treatments tailored to your needs. During a challenging time, your journey to healing begins with us. Start by booking an appointment.
