Regular breast screening saves precious lives by early detection of breast cancer.

Deewan Diagnostics, which is a comprehensive, multimodality state-of-the-art radiology and imaging facility,provides latest world class technology with most competent and highly skilled health care professionals. The centre provides a comprehensive breast cancer screening programme. The centre provides X-ray mammography facilities using CR facilities. Technology are also routinely performed, which are useful for detection of very small cancers and multiple cancerous areas in breast, especially in younger and high risk women. To detect cancer in its early stages, screening programmes have been devised. The cancer screening programme is meant for people who do not have any signs or symptoms of cancer and/or people who are at “high risk” of developing cancer. The aim is to detect unsuspected cancer at a time when cure is still possible. X-ray mammography is the primary breast imaging technology validated for screening purpose.

Which women must get an X-ray mammogram done?

  • All women above the age of 40 yrs must get an annual X-ray mammogram.
  • Since breast cancers are relatively uncommon under the age of 30 yrs, younger women with “high risk factors” must get themselves screened for breast cancer with a baseline mammogram at the age of 30-35yrs.
  • A women of any age who complains of any warning sign of breast cancer.

What are the “high risk factors” for developing breast cancer

  • Age : Women above 45 yrs of age.
  • Family history of cancer : The risk doubles for a woman whose mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, aunts or cousins have had the disease.
  • A women whose first full-term pregnancy is delayed ie until after age 30 yrs.
  • Women with early onset of menstrual periods and / or women in whom menopause has set in late.
  • Spinsters and childless married women .

What are the warning signs of breast cancer ?

  • Any lump or thickening in the breast/underarms.
  • Any discharge from the nipple.
