When you need more tests
Most of the changes which show up on a mammogram are not cancer and most women we call back do not have breast cancer.
Sometimes we need to call women back because of a technical fault. We will tell you if this is the reason.
We call back about one in every 20 women that we screen because more tests are needed. These tests may include more mammograms, a clinical examination, an ultrasound scan and possibly a needle biopsy.
What if I need treatment?
If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, finding it early gives the best chance of successful treatment. We fully discuss the options with you and agree arrangements for your treatment.
