Join us on Thursday 18 July 2019 and get your assests screened.

Affordable mammograms will be done during the TCG Pink Drive.

Mammography is the process of using low-energy X-rays to examine the human breast for diagnosis and screening. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through detection of characteristic masses or microcalcifications.

You might feel some discomfort when your breasts are compressed, and for some women it can be painful. Tell the technologist if it hurts. Two views of each breast are taken for a screening mammogram. But for some women, such as those with breast implants or large breasts, more pictures may be needed.

Women ages 40 to 44 should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms (x-rays of the breast) if they wish to do so. Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year. Women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or can continue yearly screening.

Patients can claim Vitality Points. Their ID number will be on the report when they receive it, which they can then submit.

Regarding claiming from the medical aid. The medical aid tariff does not split mammograms, ultrasound, fine needle aspiration etc. so when a patient lodges their claim, the medial aid believes that the patient has received the full service, that which we cannot provide. Should a patient require further intervention, the medical aid will see that the patient has exhausted those services and will need to pay for the additional services themselves. This we feel, would be at a great disadvantage to the patient, hence why we do not encourage patients to claim.
