Mammography

 

Mammography is important in the detection of breast disease.

 

If you are experiencing symptoms such as a lump, pain or nipple discharge a mammogram may be recommended.

 

Mammography is also used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms over the age of 40.

 

The examination is a type of X-ray and should take about 20 minutes. The radiologist may recommend further diagnostic studies such as ultrasound or biopsy following your mammogram.

 

Please note that breast implants can impede accurate mammogram readings. Please inform us if you have breast implants when making an appointment for a mammogram.

 

If you would like to book an appointment or require further information on the options available to you, please do not hesitate to contact our private patient booking team on the details above.
