Cancer testing and screening
At The Holly Private Hospital we offer a range of cancer testing and screening services.
Our team of experienced consultants and radiographers offer a comprehensive choice of diagnostic cancer health checks including:
- bowel cancer screening
- a breast clinic
- breast screening (mammography)
- cervical cancer healthchecks
- prostate cancer healthchecks
- skin cancer screening
- CT scanning
- MRI scanning
Our onsite Diagnostic and Imaging Centre is fully-equipped with advanced technology and equipment to ensure we can scan any area of the body as required. We have the region’s only 3T scanner, which is the most advanced MRI imaging currently available in private healthcare outside of Central London. Last year we invested in a new state-of-the-art Toshiba Aquilion Prime SP 160 CT scanner. We were also the first local hospital to provide MicroDose digital breast screening.
Our consultant radiologists specialise in interpreting scans and detecting diseases such as cancer. Their work is often vital in finding an accurate and early diagnosis – improving the prospects for treatment – and is fundamental to the management of cancer care. They also play an important role in identifying sources of the disease and reducing the possible risks of further spread.
Our consultant dermatologists can check for and treat skins cancers and our consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeons can check and treat mouth and oral cancers.
Our onsite Pathology laboratory analyses samples onsite, 6 days a week, meaning that you don’t have to wait a long time for results.
