Walk-in breast cancer scans offered
Walk-in breast health checks will be available at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital today as part of breast cancer awareness month.
The Bermuda Hospitals Board said that new and returning patients who had not had a mammogram already this year were welcome.
The board said women aged between 40 and 82 should get breast scans every year.
The service is not free, but insured and eligible women are covered by insurance. Uninsured patients will be billed.
The BHB added that women should get screened as long as they remained in good health and expected to have ten or more years of life.
Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to a medical professional. They should also learn the benefits, limitations and potential harm linked to breast cancer screening.
