Key Features

Private Mammogram Scans

A private mammogram is a simple and affordable 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.

  • Earlier access to breast screening

    Start having routine mammograms 10 years earlier and more regularly than on the NHS, with no waiting lists.

  • No GP referral needed

    If you are over 40, not pregnant or nursing, and have no breast cancer symptoms, you can book your own mammogram every year.

  • Find a Mammogram scan near you

    Easy online booking, where you're free to choose the best options for you.

  • Dedicated care

    Dedicated care from expert mammographers and breast health specialists.

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 beneficial. 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 find them painful. However, depending on your breast size and timing of the scan in relation to your menstrual cycle, you may find 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 5 working days. This includes a written report of the findings, verified by two independent radiologists.

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 first 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.
