If breast cancer is detected early, treatment is more likely to be successful and the chances of survival are higher.
One of the best ways to detect breast cancer early is to regularly attend breast screening. A mammogram is able to detect changes before any signs or symptoms appear that you may notice yourself. This is why it’s important to attend breast screening even if you feel fit and healthy.
