One-Stop Breast Clinic London

Back to all services

LycaHealth’s one-stop breast screening clinic is supported by a team of expert surgeons, radiologists, radiographers and breast nurse specialists. Our team prides itself on providing you with the highest standards of care. 

Often, breast screening is a way to bring yourself peace of mind and no abnormalities are detected. Of all the women aged 50-70 in the UK who have breast screenings, less than 1% detect breast cancer. However, this doesn’t mean breast screenings aren’t an essential part of detecting breast cancer early. In fact, breast screening is able to diagnose the highest proportion of cancer cases at an early stage. Sometimes, before you’ve even noticed any physical symptoms.

Private Breast Care Clinic

As a one-stop breast clinic, we can offer you a full suite of breast services; from routine consultations to a range of breast screening services. Regular breast screenings are an essential part of detecting breast cancer and other abnormalities at an early stage. 

Early detection is crucial to give you the best chance of recovery and the most options for how to proceed with treatment. 

Because we understand the anxiety that waiting for results from your breast clinic appointment, we’re committed to providing results as soon as possible. We can normally provide you with mammography results in 24 hours, and biopsy results within 48 hours. 

Our breast clinic team will then help you choose the best next steps for your health, including follow up appointments, information, advice and emotional support. 

We provide a comprehensive range of outpatient breast care services at both The Canary Wharf Breast Centre & The Orpington Breast Centre.

How long does it take to get a breast clinic appointment?

One of the biggest benefits of choosing private healthcare is you don’t have the long waiting times that tend to come with NHS appointments. Where possible, we will offer a same-day appointment. Otherwise, we’ll offer an appointment as soon as possible, often the next day or within one week. 

We can also provide results within 24 hours so when you are seen, you don’t have the anxiety of waiting for your results. 

Our one-stop breast clinic operates from Canary Wharf and Orpington so you can choose a location that suits you best. 

Do you offer genetic testing for breast cancer? 

The average risk of developing breast cancer is around 12%, or roughly 1 in 9, for women. However, if you already have a genetic predisposition towards cancer, the chance of developing breast cancer can be anywhere from 40% to 85%. 

If you know breast cancer runs in your family, it can be concerning but the best thing you can do is stay on top of your health. Genetic testing for breast cancer will help you better understand your risk of developing breast cancer in the future. This can help you proactively manage your risks, such as lifestyle changes or having regular screenings at a younger age so you can catch any anomalies quickly.  

We offer The Hereditary Breast Cancer Test through our partner Myogene

Are men able to receive treatment at the breast clinic?

Yes, while breast cancer is most common amongst women, it can also occur in men. It is most common in men over 60, but it does rarely occur in men under the age of 60. This is because men have a small amount of breast tissue behind their nipples where breast cancer can develop.

You can speak to LycaHealth GP about a referral if you’re concerned. 

Does LycaHealth provide NHS services as part of their Breast Clinic?

Our Canary Wharf breast clinic only provides private healthcare. We do support NHS work at our Orpington clinic though. You can email breastcentre@lycahealth.com or call us on 0330 054 4978 to find out more. 

Can I self refer to a breast clinic?

You are currently invited for a mammogram via the NHS if you’re over 50, but you can self-refer to have a private mammogram if you’re over 40. It’s important to note you can’t have had a mammogram in the last 12 months and must be non-symptomatic. 

If you are symptomatic, you’ll need a referral from a GP. Our private GP service can help you with a referral from either our Canary Wharf or Orpington GP clinic. 

Is it OK to have a breast ultrasound during your period?

We generally recommend you don’t schedule a breast ultrasound one week before your period or during, as your breasts can be especially sensitive during this time. This can make the ultrasound an uncomfortable experience for you. If you’d like more advice on the best time to schedule an ultrasound, email breastcentre@lycahealth.com or call us on 0330 054 4978

How much is a private mammogram in London?

You can find more information about pricing on our price list. As well as self-funding, we accept many forms of private insurance. You can get in touch with us if you have any questions about pricing.

Should I get a mammogram or breast ultrasound?

Different types of screening may offer better results depending on the patient. Breast ultrasounds are generally recommended if you’re under the age of 35. This is because, in this age group, your breasts tend to be denser and a mammogram is not as effective. 

You can book a routine breast screening to discuss any concerns you might have about your breasts health. One of our skilled breast clinic doctors will then be able to recommend the right next steps for you.
