Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women in Singapore with about 1,300 new cases yearly.

The five stages of breast cancer are: Stage 0 (non-invasive), Stage 1 (tumour size of less than 2cm), Stage 2 (tumour size of between 2cm to 5cm), Stage 3 (tumour size of more than 5cm) and Stage 4 (last stage of breast cancer).

A mammogram is an x-ray of the breasts and is an effective way of detecting small lumps/tumours. See how a mammogram is performed, learn about the national breast screening programme (called Breast Screen Singapore or BSS) and how regular mammogram screening can help save your life.
