Everything you need to know about breast cancer and mammogram.
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.
