Clinical Examination

Breast Health

It is our protocol that, before it is determined what screening tool is appropriate, you are seen by a medical doctor with a special interest in breast health for a consultation and clinical examination of the breasts.

During this examination the breasts are checked for lumps, asymmetry, skin dimpling, contour changes and any discoloration. The nipples will be checked for deviation or retraction.

Our goal is to detect breast cancers at the earliest possible stage and make an accurate diagnosis of malignant changes. Post the clinical examination a mammogram and/or high definition ultrasound may be recommended.
