Breast screening

Breast screening (mammography/mammogram) is an x-ray examination of the breasts. It can detect breast cancer before there are any signs or symptoms. The sooner breast cancer is diagnosed, the more effective treatment is likely to be.

This video looks in more detail at what breast screening is, how it works and why it is done.
