Breast Cancer Awareness & Research Unit BESTARI - Dr. Juhara & Dr. Maya HUSM

Breast cancer can affect any woman. It is more common in women over 50. If breast cancer is found at an early stage, treatment has the greatest chance of being successful. The best way of doing this is by having regular mammograms, as you may not be able to see or feel any early changes to your breasts.

A small number of women have an increased risk of breast cancer because of their significant family history and may be offered breast screening earlier and more frequently.

Breast screening involves taking an x-ray of the breast, this is called a mammogram. Two views of each breast will be taken to ensure all parts of the breast tissue can be examined.

If you are worried about the examination or have any questions, please ask:
