Mammograms are x-ray images of the breast that can help detect growths that could be cancerous or pre-cancerous.
To find out about the benefits of breast cancer screening, how to prepare and how to book a mammogram, see Saskatchewan Breast Screening Program, managed by the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.
The program provides screening for women 50 to 69 years of age. You do not need a referral from your family doctor or nurse practitioner to arrange for a mammogram.
For information about the risks of having an x-ray procedure, see X-ray.
