1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer – while this is a frightening statistic, detecting breast cancer early makes it a very treatable diagnosis.
Using the latest digital mammography technology we are able to see cancers millimetres in size & before women have developed symptoms or a lump. All women over 40 should be having regular mammograms Action Cancer offer this free service to women aged 40-49 & 70+ (the NHS screening programme will call all women aged 50-70).
All women aged between 40-49 years and over 70 years can receive a mammogram on board with results processed within 3 weeks. Appointments last approximately 10 minutes and 25 appointments are available per day.
