World class breast cancer unit to pass through parts of the province

A world-class mobile breast cancer screening unit is currently in Kimberley to execute mammograms and breast sonars for women. These screenings aligns with celebrating young survivors of cancer during June as confirmed by CANSA in Springbok.An annual mammogram, which is recommended for all women from the age of 40 years, can detect breast cancer even before a lump can be felt. A mammogram is a specialised X-ray that detects abnormalities in breast tissue by capturing detailed images and is the best way to reveal early signs of breast cancer. This all female unit can be visited until 28 June at the Northern Cape Mall. The unit will also make stops in Kathu, Upington and Springbok respectively. According to information this is part of the non-profit and mobile mammogram initiative, Screen Her Save Her, in partnership with KSR Keystone Radiology.
