About Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Screening - Clinical Breast Examination
  1. Women 40 years and older should go for a Clinical Breast Examination once every year. This is an examination of the breast tissue by a healthcare professional.
  2. Clinical Breast Examinations can be done at your GP clinic or polyclinic, or at a Gynaecological clinic.
  3. The healthcare professional, usually a doctor, will palpate (feel) both your breasts and do a visual examination. If he/she finds anything suspicious, you will be referred for further testing (such as a mammogram/ ultrasound/ biopsy) or recommended a follow-up after a certain length of time.
