What is a screening mammogram

A screening mammogram is different to a diagnostic mammogram (such as is performed in a OneStop breast clinic). A screening mammogram is looking at the whole breast rather than just an area of concern.

What does a screening mammogram involve

Screening mammography involves taking an x-ray picture of each breast while it is being gently compressed. Although it may cause mild discomfort, it can detect breast cancer at an early stage before changes can be felt in the breast by you or your doctor.
