One-Stop Breast Clinic at Aster Medcity is an outpatient clinic that operates on a simple promise – Anxiety to Peace of Mind in one visit. As the name suggests, the clinic is a single stop destination that offers examination, investigation, consultation, and treatment plan all under one roof and in one visit. You must take support of breast specialist if you come across any of the following breast symptoms: a lump in your breast or armpit, a change in size or shape of breast(s), a change in the nipple’s position, fluid leaking from the nipple, breast or nipple pain, skin changes in your breast.

Our expert team carries out a detailed assessment in a single visit to the clinic. Initially, a specialist breast consultant or nurse examine your medical history including any risk factors. After the initial assessment, you will be prescribed a breast ultrasound scan, and if needed a mammogram. If any abnormality is found in the scan, then you will be requested to carry out a further assessment - either a fine needle aspiration (FNA) or a biopsy. All this is to identify the root cause for the symptoms and to address the problem at the initial stage itself.

Even if you don’t show any symptoms, it is wise to get your breast screened every year especially if you are woman of the age above 40 years. It is to be noted that most breast symptoms are not caused by cancer. But it is better to be safe than sorry. Your chance of recovery is high if breast cancer is diagnosed at an early stage.

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer type in women in India. It is estimated that an Indian woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every four minutes. And it has been on the rise, both in rural and urban India. It is also estimated that for every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, one dies of it. The good news is that early detection coupled with the right treatment helps overcome this deadly health condition.
