One in nine women in Sweden develops breast cancer, making it the most common form of cancer among women. Scientific studies have shown that mortality in breast cancer can be reduced by 20-40% through early detection using mammography. Early detection can also mean the treatment is gentler and more effective. A mammogram screening is an X-ray examination of the breasts.
Thanks to the special X-ray technology, which provides detailed images, tumours can be detected before they cause any symptoms or can even be felt in the breast. Unilabs performs mammogram screening as a preventive measure.
