Breast screening, also known as mammography, is an important tool in detecting breast cancer at its early stages. Regular breast screening can save lives by detecting the disease before it spreads,
making treatment more effective and less invasive.
Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women worldwide. In its early stages, it
may not cause any symptoms, making it difficult for women to detect the disease on their own. This
is why regular breast screening is crucial.
Mammography uses low-dose X-rays to create images of the breast tissue, allowing for early
detection of abnormal growths or tumors. Screening mammograms can detect breast cancer up to
two years before a lump can be felt, increasing the chances of successful treatment.
It is recommended that women over the age of 50 receive regular mammograms, and those with a
family history of breast cancer may need to start screening earlier. In some cases, a clinical breast
exam or ultrasound may also be necessary.
Breast screening is a quick and relatively painless process, and its benefits far outweigh any
discomfort. It is also important to remember that breast cancer can affect men as well, and they too
should be aware of the importance of regular breast screening.
Breast screening is a critical tool in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Regular
mammograms can increase the chances of successful treatment, save lives, and help women take
control of their breast health.
