How breast cancer is diagnosed

If you have any symptoms of breast cancer you should go to your GP. They can examine you and refer you to a specialist.

  • Tests and scans

    Your medical team may use different tests and scans to see if you have breast cancer. If you do have cancer you will have further tests to find out more.

  • Breast screening

    Breast screening can help detect cancer so it can be treated as soon as possible. The sooner cancer is treated, the more effective treatment will be.
