Breast screening is a preventive healthcare service designed to detect early signs of breast cancer in women. It involves the use of mammography, a low-dose X-ray, to capture images of the breast tissue.
Generally, women between the ages of 50 and 74 are recommended to undergo regular breast screening. However, recommendations may vary depending on individual risk factors. It’s best to consult with a healthcare provider for personalised advice.
If you have got symptoms within the chest area, please visit our one-stop breast clinic and book your appointment as soon as possible as breast screening is not suitable for you.
Please note: If you have any medical conditions, have implants or are pregnant, please notify the team before your appointment.
In most cases, women are advised to have a breast screening every two years. However, the frequency might differ based on personal risk factors. Consult with your healthcare provider to determine the appropriate schedule for you.
Mammography can cause some discomfort or pressure as the breast is compressed between two plates for imaging. However, the procedure is usually quick and the discomfort is temporary.
Wear a two-piece outfit for easy access to your upper body, as you’ll need to remove your clothing from the waist up during the mammogram.
Please note: all metal, jewellery, hearing aids etc. should be removed if you are having an MRI scan.
The actual mammogram procedure usually takes about 20 minutes. However, you should plan for a slightly longer visit to allow for paperwork and any additional imaging if needed.
Yes, you can bring a friend or family member with you to provide support during the appointment, if you prefer. However, during certain examinations they will have to wait outside.
We do also offer a chaperone service if this will also help offer a more comfortable experience.
