Mid-Western Regional Symptomatic Breast Unit Logo

Breast Care at University Hospital Limerick provides services to patients with symptomatic breast disease and in particular to women with breast cancer. A multi-disciplinary team comprising of a Breast Surgeon for clinical assessment, a Breast Radiologist for breast imaging and a Breast Pathologist for tissue diagnosis work together to ensure patients are seen quickly and receive the highest quality of investigation and care. We hold weekly Triple Assessment Clinics where patients can be seen by a surgeon, have imaging (mammogram / ultrasound) and biopsy (FNAC - Fine Needle Aspiration for Cytology) at the same visit. This enables us to provide a same day diagnosis for most of our patients.
