mammogram 1Breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer among women in Singapore. Each year, 1,850 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and over 400 die from the disease.* 1 in 11 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.** Nevertheless, the chances of surviving breast cancer increases with early detection.

The mammogram is currently the most reliable screening tool for breast cancer. It can detect the presence of cancerous lumps even before they can be felt with the hand. SCS provides mammograms, without charge, to Singaporean women at the SCS Multi-Service Centre, strictly by appointment.
