Abnormal mammogram results

Less than 10% of women who have a screening mammogram with us will be asked to come back to our assessment clinic. This is because the doctors who looked at your breast x-rays saw something that needs a closer look.

You will receive a letter outlining the next steps and where the assessment can take place.  

Your assessment visit may not be at the same place you had your first screening mammogram.

It is very important that you call the BreastScreen program on 13 20 50  as soon as possible to talk about your assessment appointment.

Most women (about 9 out of 10) who need assessment will be reassured that they do not have breast cancer.
