Breast Pain Clinic, Doddington

Our breast pain clinic at Doddington offers support for concerned women with breast pain. This one-stop specialist clinic is held at Doddington Community Hospital. It allows the quick assessment and support of women in the community with breast pain only, providing there is the absence of a lump or any other abnormalities. Patients with a breast lump(s) or other abnormalities will continue to follow the usual 2 week wait (2WW) pathway.  

Breast pain alone (mastalgia) has no association with breast cancer and it affects up to 80% of women. It can be related to the menstrual cycle (cyclic breast pain) or not (non-cyclic breast pain).

Women over the age of 16 with breast pain will be booked directly into the breast pain clinic, where they will see a breast specialist. Breast pain and family history of breast cancer will be assessed together, by a doctor or Breast Specialist Nurse during your appointment. 

Following the risk assessment the specialist’s aim is to identify women with breast pain who may be at increased risk of developing breast cancer in the future. This would offer the opportunity for prevention and earlier diagnosis. Patients identified at increased risk would be referred directly to the specialist Family History Team. 

If necessary, following a consultation which needs further investigation, arrangements will be made for patients to be seen in one of our main Trust hospitals. If you have any queries please contact: 01733 673060
