Frequently Asked Questions

    • What is a mammogram?
      A mammogram is a simple examination of the breast using low-energy X-rays. The procedure can help to identify abnormalities in the breast tissue and detect lumps that cannot be felt.
    • Can I go for a mammogram if I have breast implants.
      Women with breast implants can and should follow the same guidelines recommended by MOH. However, you might need to inform your doctor in advance. The screening process may be slightly more difficult with the implants and special steps will have to be taken in order to capture clearer X-rays.
    • Is mammogram screening painful?
      The breast is compressed during mammogram to spread the tissue apart, so as to capture a good image of the breast. Some women may find this uncomfortable or painful but it only lasts for a short amount of time. Women with sensitive breasts are advised to schedule the mammograph at a time of the month when the breasts are less tender and avoid the week before the period to lessen the discomfort.
    • Can the mammogram determine that I have breast cancer?
      The denser the breast tissue is, the higher the probability of cancer being hidden by the breast tissue. Hence, regular mammogram screenings are very important and remain the most effective way of detecting breast abnormalities early.
       
    • How long is the mammogram process?
      It takes approximately 15 minutes to complete the process.
