Mammogram

Following a consultation with one of our doctors, a mammogram can be used to further diagnose symptoms or to confirm a clinical diagnosis. Routine mammograms can also be arranged. This will be conducted by our partner providers in the clinics’ localities.

We recommend that you have a consultation with a doctor and discuss together the right diagnostic processes for you. Any scans can be arranged by our teams at your convenience.

A mammogram (or mammography) is a cancer screening procedure, designed to catch any early signs of malignant growths in the breast. During a mammogram, the breast is pressed between two plastic plates, allowing an x-ray to be taken, which can then be studied for any abnormalities. The procedure is uncomfortable, and can be painful for those with tender breasts.

Estimates indicate that a third of breast cancer cases are discovered through screening procedures. It is particularly recommended that you have regular mammograms once you reach the age of 50, or younger if:

• two or more close relatives on the same side of your family developed the disease
• three close relatives have been diagnosed at any point
• a combination of ovarian and breast cancers in your close relatives
• a close female relative who was diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 40
