What can a patient expect?
VM-Med Breast Center offers patients next-day appointments with a breast expert physician. Results from mammography, ultrasound and/or MRI examinations are available on the same day, and biopsy examination results are available four to ten business days following the procedure. If surgery is required, it can often be scheduled in the same week as the diagnosis.
No referral is required to make an appointment. Simply fill out the online form, and our patient affairs coordinator will contact you as quickly as possible.
National guidelines state that women between 50 and 74 years old benefit most from regular breast screening. https://cancer.ca/en/cancer-information/find-cancer-early/get-screened-for-breast-cancer
An appointment for a mammogram can usually be scheduled within 24 to 48 hours.
Please send us an inquiry on https://www.vmmed.com/contact-us/ with your referral and our team will help with this request.
If your physician considers it necessary, he will order a biopsy. It can be done the same day at the clinic. Some patients feel having this option contributes to lower anxiety and stress as you don’t need to go elsewhere for your tests.
There are warning signs of breast cancer:
– New lump in the breast or underarm
– Thickening or swelling of part of the breast.
– Irritation or dimpling of breast skin.
– Redness or flaky skin in the nipple area or the breast.
– Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area.
We recommend patients book a consultation to see our expert physicians if they have any concerns, and as recommended by your referring physician.
A small percentage of breast lumps turn out to be cancer. If you notice a lump in your breast or near that region, or if you notice any changes in breast tissue, you should consider booking an appointment. The physician may order breast imaging to determine if this lump is of concern or not.
Whether you are a male or a female, you are born with a variety of breast cells and tissue. Even though males do not develop milk-producing breasts, a man’s breast cells, and tissue can still develop cancer. Even if it’s very rare, men can be diagnosed with breast cancer. Most men diagnosed are over the age of 50.
