Frequently Asked Questions

A private mammogram is a breast screening procedure that individuals can choose to have at a private medical facility, often outside of the regular government-sponsored screening programs.

Opting for a private mammogram allows you to have the screening done on your preferred schedule and in a comfortable environment. It might also offer faster results and more personalised attention.

You can schedule a private mammogram by contacting our team to book an appointment. Alternatively you can request an appointment online.

The fundamental procedure is the same; however, private mammograms are typically chosen by those who want more control over their screening experience and timeline.

The age recommendation for private mammograms is typically the same as the general guidelines for breast cancer screening. It’s advisable to consult your healthcare provider about the right timing for you.

The frequency of mammograms can vary based on factors like age and personal risk factors. Generally, women between 50 and 74 are advised to have a mammogram every two years, but individual circumstances may differ.

Here are a few things to prepare you for your mammogram appointment:

  • You do not need to make any changes to your diet or hydration before your appointment.
  • Avoid using deodorant on the day of your appointment, as it may interfere with the X-ray image.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to remove for the procedure.

The procedure itself usually takes around 20 minutes, but you should plan for a slightly longer visit to complete paperwork and any necessary preparations.

At LycaHealth Orpington breast clinic, we use mammogram machines with tomosynthesis capability. This means that our radiologists can capture a 3D view of your breast if further imaging is required.

Our breast care specialists are dedicated to providing exceptional care and we utilise digital mammography to provide detailed and accurate 3D images. We have our one-stop breast clinic which offers comprehensive care and on-site testing and treatment facilities, so if you require further imaging or tests, you will be in capable hands.

To get a Mammogram appointment you will require a referral from a doctor. You can not book an appointment for a private mammogram Scan by self referral.
