Regular breast cancer screening is the best way for you to have peace of mind about your health. An early detected lesion is easily treatable without invasive treatments.

Breast cancer screening

Breast cancer is a serious and life-threatening disease that affects millions of women every year. Going for regular breast cancer screening is important because it can help detect breast cancer in its early stages, when it is most treatable.


Early detection can also allow for less invasive treatment options and better chances of full recovery - for a long and healthy life.

I was pleased with my mammography because it gave me peace of mind and it was easy. I thought that only married women could get breast cancer, but later found out that any female can have it. This makes me want to tell every woman to go check on herself and I hope Vara expands to more areas for wider coverage.

My mammography experience was smooth and easy… I think every woman should get regular breast screening to make sure she’s well.

  • Is a mammogram painful?
    Depending on the size and shape of your breast, it can be a bit painful during the process due to the compression of the machine. However, our assistants are trained to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
  • Why is ultrasound not used in some cases in addition to the mammogram?
    Ultrasound is important , for example, to further examine suspicious cases. However, according to the international guidelines, ultrasound usage is not recommended for average-risk women without symptoms as the primary imaging method. Doing more ultrasounds than medically required also increases the probability of “unnecessary biopsies” for healthy women. The anxiety of a biopsy, the pain and the costs should be avoided if possible. This is why centers that collaborate with Vara are advised to utilize ultrasound according to international guidelines.
  • How should I prepare for a mammogram?
    Timing-wise, it is best to have a mammogram in the week after your menstrual period. If you had a mammogram before and have them as a copy or CD, then please bring them with you and tell the receptionist at the check-in. Moreover, don’t use a deodorant before you go for your appointment. Some particles in the deodorant could influence the image.
  • Is my insurance covering the mammogram?
    Please contact the Vara center directly to find out if you are eligible for partial or full insurance coverage.
  • Is breast cancer genetic?
    Yes, in some cases it could be. Your genes determine more than your blood type and physical features. They may also determine your risk for developing certain diseases, including cancer. Approximately 6 to 8 percent of all cases of breast cancers are likely to be hereditary.
  • Do I need to fast for the mammogram?
    There’s no need to fast before a mammogram, as it will not affect the results. Feel free to eat, drink, and take any medication.
  • Can I have a post-screening consultation with a doctor?
    Definitely! Our health navigators who are medically trained professionals will assist you with post screening concerns and questions that you may have based on your reports and also guide you on next best steps if any are needed.
