Breast Cancer Screening
BreastScreen gives priority access appointments to private breast screening mammogram services at locations throughout the UK.
Why Breast Screening is necessary?
Klarity’s cancer screening services are clinically governed by age restrictions, if you are not within the age range for a service you will not be able to sign up to that service. This is because clinical research does not support the benefits of screening people outside our specified age eligibilities. Regardless of age, if you have symptoms then you should always seek medical advice from your GP.
Why should I get checked for breast cancer?
Mammograms are able to detect tumours that cannot be felt by you or your doctor. By being able to detect tumours at this very early stage you would usually require less treatment and have a far more positive outcome than those who present with symptoms. Women aged between 40-49 should consider having a mammogram every 12 months. Women aged between 50-70 would usually be screened as part of the NHS program every 3 years. Should you wish to have a screening mammogram with Klarity, we would be able provide this for you every two years.

If you are pregnant or breast feeding you will not be able to use this service, you must wait for 6 months after giving birth and 6 months after you stop breast feeding.
How does it work?
A breast screening mammogram is an X-ray of the breast used to detect breast changes in women who have NO signs or symptoms of breast cancer. It usually involves two X-rays of each breast. You will receive your results letter within 4 weeks of your mammogram. Should any abnormality be identified we will contact you by telephone before sending your results letter.
