Breast Cancer Screening
BreastScreen gives priority access appointments to private breast screening mammogram services at locations throughout the US.
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 Physician.
Why should I get checked for breast cancer?
According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, excluding non-melanoma skin cancers. It is also the second leading cause of cancer death among women, after lung cancer.
In 2021, it was estimated that there would be approximately 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed among women in the United States, as well as 49,290 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. Additionally, around 2,650 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in men.
The lifetime risk of a woman developing breast cancer in the United States is about 1 in 8 (or 13%). However, the risk varies based on factors such as age, family history, and genetics.
