Since 2017 we have provided a rapid access or urgent clinic.
If your GP identifies an urgent problem they you will be seen within a week. Dr Arianayagam consults at least three times a week, so we will be able to accommodate you at short notice. All that is needed is a referral marked “Urgent clinic” or a phone call from your GP.
Recent updated guidelines from the Cancer Council and the Prostate Cancer foundation suggests that:
Men with a family history of prostate cancer should be screened from age 40
Dr Arianayagam has a rapid access program set up with various radiology practices in Sydney to ensure that very high quality MRI scans of the prostate are done as quickly as possible. In addition, Dr Arianayagam performs prostate biopsies in multiple locations and hence your biopsy can be performed very quickly to ensure prompt and optimum care.
Patients diagnosed with prostate cancer will be seen in the multidisciplinary prostate clinic.
