Why should I choose Scan.com for my mammogram?

A private mammogram is a simple and afordable way to get peace of mind, or detect early signs of breast cancer before any symptoms are visible. Yearly breast screenings can't prevent cancer, but they can open the door to faster treatment and better outcomes if an anomaly is found.

  • Start having routine mammograms 10 years earlier than on the NHS
  • No GP appointment or referral needed, and no waiting lists
  • Easy online booking, where you're free to choose the best options for you
  • Dedicated care from expert mammographers and breast health specialists

If you have any symptoms of breast cancer, such as a lump or change in breast appearance, please make an appointment with your GP as soon as possible rather than booking a screening scan.

Private mammogram Scans

At what age should you have a mammogram in the UK?

Private breast screenings in the UK are available from the age of 40. This is ten years earlier than routine NHS mammograms start (from age 50). The sooner anomalies are found, the better the opportunities are for treatment, which is why private early screenings can be benefcial. If you notice symptoms of breast cancer, such as a lump, it is important to see your GP as soon as possible and not wait for a routine screening appointment.

How often should you have a mammogram in the UK?

You can have a private breast screening once every 12 months. This limit is in place due to the potential risks of repeated X-Ray exposure. The scans are safe to undergo privately on a yearly basis, meanwhile, the NHS ofers routine mammograms every three years

Do mammograms hurt?

Mammograms are non-invasive procedures, and many people do not fnd them painful. However, depending on your breast size and timing of the scan in relation to your menstrual cycle, you may fnd it uncomfortable or painful. The scan is quick to complete, and any discomfort should subside shortly afterwards, but you should tell your mammographer if you experience pain during the scan.

How long for mammogram results?

The NHS gives an estimated 2-3 week wait for mammogram results. With Scan.com, you will receive your results within X working days. This includes a written report of the fndings and XYZ.

What does it mean if I get recalled after a mammogram?

Being recalled after a mammogram can be worrying, but it does not necessarily mean a serious issue has been found. Only 4% of women are called back after a mammogram, and many of them will not have breast cancer. Your specialist might recall you if the frst scan wasn't clear, or to recommend further tests if an issue has been found. It is worth noting that not all anomalies are cancerous, and less than 1% of all mammograms result in a breast cancer diagnosis.
