​​The newly opened Breast Care Clinic at the National Center for Cancer Care and Research (NCCCR) marks an important milestone on the journey towards reducing the incidence of breast cancer in Qatar - the most common cancer among women in the country.

Women visiting the clinic will have access to specialized services including ultrasound, core biopsies, clinical breast examinations and breast tomosynthesis - an advanced type of mammogram that can offer better cancer detection resulting in the need for fewer biopsies.
The Breast Care Clinic has been specially designed to be a healing environment providing both convenience and comfort for women. As well as being a one stop location for patients, the clinic offers world renowned techniques to reduce the time needed to diagnose women and start any required treatment immediately.

As part of a patient’s treatment, the clinic conducts a triple assessment test - currently the gold standard internationally for thorough and accurate breast cancer diagnoses. The special assessment requires every individual referred to the clinic to go through a series of diagnostic tests including a clinical breast examination, breast imaging and or a core biopsy, if a lump is found.

If a woman is found to have abnormal results after the triple assessment, they will meet with a radiologist and surgeon at the clinic and undergo a radiological examination for further diagnosis. Those whose results are clear are discharged to the National Screening Program for regular screening every three years.
