The Breast Unit at the Princess Royal University Hospital provides a full range of tests, investigations and treatments for breast conditions, including cancer.

We offer the latest full-field digital mammography (breast x-rays) plus advanced techniques including sentinel node biopsies using radioactive tracers and blue dye, as well as specialist analysis of tissues during surgery to avoid the need for another operation.

We also offer all forms of oncoplastic and reconstructive surgery, some of which we perform jointly with plastic surgeons at St Thomas’ hospital.
