Quick facts about mammograms

DID YOU KNOW THAT They can save your life?

Early detection of breast cancer reduces your risk of death from the disease by MORE THAN 25-30%.  

 

Resolution Health has an allocated Preventative Care benefit for mammogram screening across most health scheme options. It is recommended that women should start scheduling mammograms from the age of 50, and should do so every two years. Women who are at a higher risk of breast cancer should schedule mammograms as frequently as advised by their healthcare providers.

If you feel that you may need to schedule a mammogram, be sure to take a look through your health scheme plan in which you will be able to find out where you can have the necessary procedure done. However, if you have yet to sign up for a health scheme, be sure to take a look at the various options from Resolution Health – you are sure to find a plan that suits your budget, and your needs.
