Next steps and results

You will get a rapid diagnosis following your appointment which can take up to 48 hours.

For most people, a breast assessment will show normal breast changes or a benign breast condition. Benign breast conditions are common and there are many different types. In this case, the consultant will explain what it is and whether you need any treatment or follow-up.

Having investigations for a breast problem can be a worrying and stressful time. The staff in the breast clinic will know that you want results as soon as possible. A follow-up appointment with your consultant and specialist breast care nurse may be arranged to discuss your result. If your results show that you have breast cancer, your consultant and breast care nurse will talk to you.

It may be a good idea to have someone with you when you go to your follow-up appointment to get your results. That way you can be sure there is someone there for support, should you need it.
