Mammogram Screening Singapore, MediSave Claimable

Mammogram Screening Singapore

What Is a Mammogram?

A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. Doctors look for early signs of breast cancer. Having regular mammograms is the most reliable and recommended method to detect breast cancer before a lump can be felt. Early detection means doctors can treat it sooner, leading to a much better chance of recovery.

For those at higher risk, particularly individuals with BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutations or family history, heightened surveillance through more frequent and varied screenings is recommended. Please talk to our doctor to find out more.

How Often Should Mammograms Be Done?

How often should mammograms be done after 50? Are mammograms necessary every year? When should mammograms be done? These are indeed valid and common questions.

The following are Ministry of Health (MOH)'s recommendations on breast cancer screening:

Age Group Frequency
Women 50 years old and above Screening every 2 years is recommended
Women between 40 and 49 years old Annual screening is recommended
Women below 40 years old No screening required, unless you are in the high risk category

Who Is at High Risk of Breast Cancer?

Women in the high risk category should consult a doctor about the recommended frequency for screening. Typically, high risk women would have a history of:

1. Breast cancer in several close family members.
2. Other cancers, especially cancer of the ovary and colon, as well as breast cancer, in members of the same family.
3. Breast cancer in a close relative under the age of 40.

A mammogram is the preferred procedure when performing breast cancer screening for a women above 40 years old. It is different from an ultrasound as mammograms look for calcifications (especially microcalcifications) which may be indicative of early breast cancer. Ultrasound of the breast can only detect breast cancer if there is a large enough sized growth in the breast tissue.

A lot of women fear mammograms due to pain and radiation. However, it is important to note that with better technological advancements, newer models of mammogram machines are more sensitive and hence, less pain and radiation is practically felt during the process.
