The consultant will recommend that patients with breast problems attend for periodic follow-up, usually once a year, to monitor any changes to the breast. Any investigations required, such as mammography, will be undertaken prior to the follow-up appointment with the consultant surgeon. It is not normally possible to have the investigation on the same day as the consultation, as time is needed to prepare reports for the consultant.
Patients who have undergone surgery for breast cancer, will undergo regular review to ensure that there is no recurrence of the cancer. This will be discussed with the consulsant breast surgeon.
It is important that patients bring their previous x-ray films, in order that the consultant radiologist can compare them to the current image
