It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, or Pink October as it’s commonly called, so to spread awareness about women’s health we’ve compiled a list of places where you can get a mammogram in Kuala Lumpur.
It’s never too early to get yourself screened and we’re here to tell you why. As stated by the Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting women. At least one in 19 Malaysian women is at risk. However, the chances of survival rate are higher, if it’s detected early.
You probably already know that the best way to notice change is by understanding how your breasts usually look and feel. Get in the habit of doing a breast self-examination once a month. The best time to examine your breasts is usually a week after your menstrual.
Suppose you notice a lump or swelling — in the breast, upper chest or armpit. Perhaps a change in colour (red or inflamed) around the nipple and more? Don’t panic. Instead, make an appointment with these hospitals and organisations in KL for a breast screening.
