As women reach 40 years of age, they are recommended to get a mammogram every 1-2 years. It is also recommended that women who have had breast cancer or a family history of breast cancer should have a mammogram more often/earlier.
Mammograms allow a consultant radiologist to examine and diagnose any irregularities of the breast such as abnormal changes, differences between breasts, lumps, calcifications or changes since the previous mammogram.
Blackrock Clinic recently installed a brand new mammography unit. This unit is the newest and most technologically advanced on the market at present.
